HUNDREDS of people attended the National Cool Climate Wine Show's public tasting night on October 26.
The event, held at Bathurst Panthers, was an opportunity for people to sample some of the top-performing wines that were entered in the show.
Around 800 entries were received this year and there were 300 medals awarded, with four gold going to wines from the Central Ranges.
Top honours went to Orange's Tamburlaine Organic Wines, which won champion wine of the show for its 2019 Reserve Riesling.
The variety was also the champion riesling of the show, top white wine, and won the vineyard the Central Ranges Trophy for the best wine from the central west of NSW.
Bathurst vignerons also did well. Combined, three different vineyards picked up three silver medals and five bronze.
