The Wine Experience
The Sydney Royal Wine Show is one of the most prestigious wine shows in Australia. Held annually, dating back to 1826, wines are judged on variants including complexity, fruitiness and balance.
At the conclusion of the judging we throw open the doors and share an afternoon of fabulous wine, fine food and great music.
It offers wine lovers the opportunity to taste their preferred selections from the 2017 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show, discover new favourites from the 2,200 Exhibits and enjoy a sample of the celebrated Trophy winning wines.
Arrive early, grab your results catalogue and sample your way through this year's successes, taste new trends in wine and learn a thing or two thanks to our Expert Judges Tours.
Industry Judges and experts will be on hand to guide you and your palate around the stunning array of varietals and blends. There'll also be gourmet boards laden with Sydney Royal award-winning cheese and charcuterie.
Pick up your FREE Riedel Ouverture Glass along with your event guide on arrival and get ready to tell some stories of your own.

Riedel Sensory Workshop
Ever wondered why oaked Chardonnays are described as buttery, but yours always taste woody and bland? What about Pinot Noir, which is supposed to be fragrant and complex, but smells and tastes flat? When we try something we don't like, we always fault the wine, and never think it might be the glass we're using to blame.
Join us for an exclusive Riedel Sensory workshop and learn the incredible difference your glass makes to beverages. This special tasting features our visually stunning Veritas series. Veritas combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistency of a machine-made product. Your ticket includes 4 of these sensational glasses valued at $239.90. Plus, thanks to Riedel's global partner, Lindt, you'll be treated to the additional element of chocolate and wine matching.
