RIVERINA WINE SHOW OPEN CLASSES

The Riverina is the country’s largest wine producer, accounting in NSW for 60% of the state’s production. Producers have been compelled to draw from well beyond the Riverina to meet demands for the considerable volumes of consistent quality wine they produce, to compete at key price points in both domestic and overseas markets.

RIVERINA REGION WINE SHOW

The Riverina Region Show GI Classes focus on evaluating the style and quality of wines produced from entirely within the Riverina. These classes are specifically aimed at creating space for smaller producers to be represented in competition, providing the industry with a better perspective of the Riverina’s true capacity as a wine-producing region.

AUSTRALIAN ITALIAN VARIETIES WINE AWARDS

Created in 2016 to focus specifically on the development of Australian wines from Italian varieties. The awards have a natural link with the Riverina, as the region’s agricultural foundations were underpinned by the strong Italian migrant population, right back to the early 1900s.
