The Kiama Show Society recently issued a call for entries for the 5th Annual Kiama Regional Wine Show which closes on 1 September. The award winning Show is run under the auspices of the Society and follows standards established by the Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology and the Royal Sydney Wine Show.
The event is open to wine produced from grapes grown in the Shoalhaven Coast and Southern Highlands Wine Regions and surrounding districts that are not classified in another wine region.
The judging panel comprises respected judges from across NSW and the ACT. This year’s panel will once again be chaired by Keith Tulloch of Keith Tulloch Wine, a fourth generation winemaker from the Hunter Region. Keith will be joined by winemakers Christian Gaffey (Jackson’s Hill & Australian Wine Selectors) and Bryan Martin (Clonakilla) as well as Canberra Times wine writer Fergus McGhie.
The KRWS is judged strictly to international standards and a medal awarded at Kiama has the same standing as one awarded at Sydney, Melbourne or overseas. Regional wine shows provide producers with an opportunity to gauge how their wines compare with others in their region. They are also an opportunity for them to review the vintages they have in storage and see how they are aging from a technical perspective. Producers are welcome to enter as many older vintages as they wish (in keeping with the rules & regulations of the KRWS).
Although the judging events are not open to the general public, the public is invited to attend the gala Awards Dinner at Bellachara Boutique Hotel Gerringong on Saturday, 20th September. This black-tie event always sells out so it is recommended that you purchase tickets quickly. For tickets or more information on how you can become involved contact JAi Events on 02 4237 5554.
