Post-Judging Public Wine Tasting
Saturday 26th October | 6pm to 9pm | Tickets $40.00
Venue: Bathurst Panthers Skyline Room, 132 Piper Street, Bathurst

Book the date and invite your friends for the largest collections of cool climate wines in Australia. This event is about the appreciation of wine, trying new wine styles, judging the wines for yourself and discovering the essence of cool climate wines from across cool growing areas in Australia. Try everything from Sparkling to Gewürztraminer, Shiraz to Malbec, pop a little Rosé in your glass or sample a dessert wine, at your fingertips with informative volunteers assisting you.

The very popular public wine tasting is held on the Saturday evening after the judging has been finalised. Collect your complimentary long stem glass upon entry, highlight your top wines in your wine show tasting booklet complete with all the results, enjoy complimentary first class nibbles and local music.

Held in the very comfortable Skyline Room at Bathurst Panthers, within one block of accommodation, restaurants and services, this is an event not to be missed.

Fabulous evening of cool climate wines (800+) and yummy food from Al Dente

This event is well-designed for everyone, there was a relaxed feel as everyone sipped their way around the room, and the pourers were very informative about the wines. I had an excellent night and will be coming again next year!
