Southern Highlands Food & Wine Festival, NSW

Australian Highland
Wine Awards Night

Supporting our local producers

JOIN US ON FRIDAY 28 OCTOBER AS WE RAISE A GLASS TO THE AWARD-WINNING WINE FROM 2022 IN THE COMPANY OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST OUTSTANDING HIGH ALTITUDE WINEMAKERS

Open to regions from all over Australia, the show attracts producers from the Southern Highlands, Orange, Mudgee, Tumbarumba, Hilltops, New England, Canberra District and Adelaide Hills.

Now in its 12th year the winners are selected by an esteemed judging panel over two days. In 2021 this was led by Toni Paterson MW together with Rob Geddes MW, winemaker Aaron Mercer, wine writer Paul Diamond and sommelier Ashlyn Foster.

Over 120 entries were received in the 2021 show, with judges commenting on the high quality of entries – especially as so many exhibitors lost an entire vintage in the Black Summer bushfires.

Out of the 88 medals awarded in 2021, an impressive 41 medals were won by local wines.
