The 4th Annual Melbourne International Wine Competition

Last month’s Melbourne International Wine Competition was held at the RACV City Club in the center of Melbourne. This year’s judging panel included buyers from top retail stores, sommeliers, distributors, and importers from Australia and the greater Asia Pacific Region. The judges were excited by the high quality of known wineries submitted as well as the large number of new wine brands looking to break into the Asia Pacific Market. The 5th Annual Melbourne International Spirits Competition will be held on June 24-25, 2018.
