The Wine Show was proudly founded in 1999 by the Bathurst Regional Vignerons Association. Now, in its 20th year the show has always existed to benefit, promote and provide world class feedback for Australia’s cool climate wine growers. The National Cool Climate Wine Show is the largest wine event inland from a capital city, with growing support every year from the public, business sector and media.

Although the judging process is a closed event, the Public Tasting held on the 19th October 2018 is a great opportunity to get familiar with cool climate wines and to informally chat to our local wine producers and regional winemakers.  Surrounded by locally sourced fresh food, coupled with a huge range of complementary wines, expand on your wine knowledge by simply tasting.

This event is a must for everyone, from the new wine lovers to the experienced.

So join us to enjoy local musical talent, over 800 sips of cool climate wine and the best local food the region has to offer!
