The Wine Communicators of Australia (WCA) Royal Adelaide Wine & Spirits Awards Lunch, run in partnership with the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of SA, will be once again held at the Adelaide Showground on Friday 8 October 2021, 12.30 – 3.30pm.  

WCA is pleased to share an exciting addition to this year’s event- the winners of the Royal Australian Spirit Awards. The top three wine show awards AND the Champion Spirit of Show will be announced for the first time at the lunch, as listed below:

  • Max Schubert AM Trophy for Most Outstanding Red Wine in Show
  • George Fairbrother Memorial Trophy for Most Outstanding White Wine in Show
  • Gramp Hardy Hill Smith Prize for Outstanding Wine of Provenance
  • Champion Spirit of Show

The WCA Royal Adelaide Wine & Spirits Lunch is an opportunity to celebrate excellence in winemaking and distilling and immerse yourself in this year’s trophy and award-winning wines. Guests will hear details of the judging process from the Royal Adelaide Wine Show Chair of Judges and the Royal Australian Spirit Awards Chief Judge.  

Chair RA&HS Wine Committee and Winemaker Lake Breeze Wines, Greg Follett, commented that. “The format of the lunch over the last couple of years has been relaxed, with the food now a real highlight to match the superb wines on offer. The atmosphere is casual and fun, and it is a great opportunity to catch up with industry colleagues. It really is becoming a ‘must-do’ event for the SA wine industry.”

WCA Executive Officer, Andrew Stark, commented that “It’s hugely pleasing that we can celebrate excellence in winemaking in person again after such a challenging year in 2020. The wines on show in Adelaide are always spectacular, so being able to share these world-class winners in person will make this year’s event all the more exciting.”
