Wine Show judging - an insider's view OF panel tastings

Adelaide - Friday 31 July 2015

On 31 July the AWRI is launching a brand new one-day course that will provide an insider’s view of judging on the national wine show circuit.

Three highly respected current or former wine show chairs (Sam Connew, David Bicknell and PJ Charteris) will take you onto their panels as associate judges. Each panel will consist of just five associate judges and one panel chair.

Over the day each panel will taste six brackets of wine – all selected from a recent national wine show. You will taste through each bracket and then work directly with your panel chair to discuss each wine and reach a consensus panel score – just as you would in a wine show.

Each associate judge will judge two brackets with each of the three guest judges, experiencing their different judging styles and tips. Wines tasted during the day will include one bracket of sparkling, two brackets of white wines and three brackets of reds.
Get up close and personal with not one but three wine show chairs
It’s at the top of every aspiring associate judge’s list to spend quality time with a wine show chair - to ask questions, learn from their experience and get all the inside knowledge about wine show judging. This course is your chance to spend an entire day with Sam Connew, David Bicknell and PJ Charteris.
