Inland Wine Show receives more than 300 entries

Entries officially closed at the end of August for the 28th Annual Australian Inland Wine Show (AIWS) held in Swan Hill. Entry coordinator Marg Garner said that with a few stragglers there is just over 300 entries representing around 50 exhibitors.

The AIWS provides an opportunity for producers with eligible wines from the Australian GI regions of Murray Darling, Riverland, Riverina and Swan Hill to compare, benchmark and showcase their wines. Wine made from grapes grown in these regions collectively represents the country’s largest annual production of wine so it is a vitally important show in the eyes of the industry at large.

A popular feature of the AIWS is the opportunity for growers who produce their own commercial wine and non commercial producers who comply with the regulations to participate. The Organic section has also gained in popularity in recent times on the back of increased public interest in all things organic.

David Morris has again accepted the role of Chief Judge. As usual David has assembled a skilled and experienced team of senior and associate judges. Judging will be carried out on October 5th and 6th. The gala Trophy and Presentation Dinner for exhibitors and interested parties will be the on Friday October 17th. This will be followed the next day with an exhibitor’s & public tasting. Immediately following this weekend all results will be published on the website www.inlandwine.com.au.

Each year the AIWS committee are pleased to offer two Oenology/Wine Science students the opportunity to participate and experience the machinations of a well run, respected and accredited wine show. The experience is an invaluable window to an important part of their chosen career. It helps the students practice and hone their sensory skills.

Anyone wishing to contact the AIWS should call the Secretary, Marg Lucardie on 03 5033 1726 or by email to ">s. The web site for all information is www.inlandwine.com.au.
