The 6th Annual Melbourne International Wine Competition

The 2019 Melbourne International Wine Competition was held at the RACV City Club in the heart 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. As with all of our competitions, we only select top trade buyers to be our judges, ensuring that the brands submitted are tasted by the true decision-makers of the beverage industry. The judges were thrilled by the high quality of known wine brands submitted as well as the large number of new wineries looking to break into the Asia Pacific Market. The 7th Annual Melbourne International Wine Competition will be held in June of 2020.
