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.


Public WIne Tasting Event

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 year the event has moved to a beautiful fresh venue at Bathurst Panthers Club that offers many new exciting features for our week of judging and presentation of our wines for the annual public tasting. It’s central location also makes it easy to find a nice local venue for dinner after the public tasting event concludes, with many of our hospitality partners welcoming later bookings as a bonus to the event. What a perfect way to celebrate 20 years of the coolest wines with your friends!
