21 years

15 & 16 October 2019

Now in its 21st year, the Geelong Wine Show continues to bring together big and small producers from across the Geelong Wine Region showcasing the quality and diversity of their wines. This years show is to be held at Waurn Ponds Estate, Deakin Geelong, Waurn Ponds.

A key emphasis on the Wine Show is to use the Show as a learning and development opportunity for the region’s winegrowers.  Entrants will be provided with written feedback to exhibitors who were unsuccessful in securing a medal for their wine that could be drawn upon in future wine making decisions.  An opportunity will also be provided through the Associate Judging Program for an aspiring Geelong winemaker to obtain a mentored judging experience both at the Geelong and Victorian Wine Shows in 2019.

It is with thanks to the sponsors, judges and Geelong region producers who make the Geelong Wine Show one of the standout regional wine shows in Australia.
