A party for the palate awaits those who attend this year’s milestone 20th National Cool Climate Wine Show public tasting event.
Judges will firstly scrutinise the aromas and flavours of more than 800 wines at this year’s show before the public will be welcomed to taste the range of drops.
Held on the Friday, October 19 at Panthers Bathurst, the tasting is a night when people can play wine judge and compare the flavours across different regions while enjoying some top drops, chatting to local wine producers and regional winemakers, and tucking into exceptional nibbles provided by Al Dente.
“This is a really premium wine event being held west of Sydney,” National Cool Climate Wine Show spokeswoman Michelle Kerr said.
“A lot of wine shows are held in capital cities, so for a show of this size and calibre to be held in a regional area is great. In terms of industry standards this is a big event.”

With a staggering 807 wines at the show there’ll be a drop to please everyone.
“Wine should be for everyone and everyone is invited to this tasting event,” Ms Kerr said. “You don’t have to be an expert or connoisseur, you just have to say ‘I’d like to try and know a little bit more about wine and what suits me’. That’s what the wine show’s public tasting is all about. There is so much variety that there has to be a wine for each and every palette.”
Enjoying a drop in moderation and developing an appreciation for wine should no longer be an elitist pastime and Ms Kerr hopes events like the public tasting will help to educate people on the simple idea of knowing what wines they enjoy.
“Events like this help to break down the barriers in regard to wine. There should be no barriers,” she said.
“You have to start somewhere, so why not start with this range of wines at your fingertips? Then you can tip out what you don’t like and drink what you do and find something that suits you.”
