Re-launch of Victorian Wines Show website

The Victorian Wines Show website re-launch started Victorian Wines Show director, Karen Docherty thinking about people’s thoughts on the purpose of wine shows and the judging process.

It seemed the perfect platform to show the history and value of wine shows, how the Victorian Wines Show came to be and the complexities involved in sensory appraisal. Readers will find a rich and unique website that will bring them into the world of wine shows and judging.

The site informs visitors of dates of events, award winning wines, the people and organisations behind the show and will update them with news from time to time. This site showcases Victorian wine and the important role of the Victorian Wines Show and its role as an innovator.

In keeping with the profile of the show there are expert panels of judges and associates and dedicated stewards. It remains a vision and commitment of the Victorian Wines Show to provide a show of excellence to benchmark the quality of Victorian wine.
