VIC100 returning in September


After a successful 2014 event, this year’s VIC100 Wine Awards have opened registration for all Victorian wineries.

Held at Federation Square on 5 September 2015, the award show has put a call out for wines spanning across all regions and varieties.

Nick Stock, head judge and curator, said he was expecting big things for this year’s event after the 2014 debut of VIC100 was deemed a success.

“Whilst the numbers were terrific, it was the calibre of wines and wineries that entered that really set it apart,” Stock said. “VIC100 is not like every other wine show. It looks to build and promote the inherent connection between great wines and their origins.”

Stock said the event seeks to present what Victoria does best, with classifications in fortified wine, white wine blends, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Italian varietals, sparkling and Prosecco, among others.

“We take the eclectic mix of Victorian wine regions and all the myriad of styles they produce, look to find the very best examples and then present and promote them arm in arm as the best wines of Victoria, a state that is unrivalled in Australia for its depth and breadth of quality wine,” Stock said.  

Last year, a range of wineries and styles were celebrated by the judging panel, according to Stock, with eight regional winners showcasing outstanding examples of regional style.

Entries are now open to all Victorian wineries with judging taking place between 3 to 7 August.
