Held on the Friday evening after the judging, the Wine Show Public Tasting is a night when you get to try your skills as a wine taster and judge the wines. Compare the flavours across different regions and assess the techniques used by the wine makers as they vie for top points. Collect your complimentary Wines of Bathurst glass upon entry, highlight your top wines in your wine show tasting booklet.


We are excited to announce the 20th National Cool Climate Wine Show will be held at Panthers Bathurst.

This beautiful fresh venue 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.
