For those readers in Sydney, it’s almost time for the annual Victorian Winemakers Exhibition at The Menzies Hotel. This year the event will be held on January 30 & 31 with the public tastings between 4pm – 8pm.

I went last year and may I suggest arriving as close to 4pm as possible to taste around some pre-selected wineries and then doing a tutorial session from 6pm to 7pm when the crowds really start to ramp up.

There is more information at regarding entry cost, wineries on show and the tutored tastings that are being offered.

I have some observations on trends encountered at last years show here and a roundup on wines tasted here. This year I plan on getting along to the trade tastings and having more time to speak to the winemakers along with tasting some new releases.

  1. Hi Cam

    Glad to see you will be going. Received a Trade Invitation but I’m not going to be able to use it. If you drop by the Moorooduc table give my regards to Kate McIntyre and the poodles.


  2. Thanks for the heads up Cam,

    Gemma and I will be attending the monday, I am especially keen for the shiraz and pinot tutorials.
