The WCA Royal Adelaide Wine Show Awards Lunch is the showpiece event on the SA wine calendar. Run in partnership with the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of SA, we are delighted that the 2019 event will be once again held at the Adelaide Showground. As such, all guests are invited to attend a special tasting of the show wines before being treated to a three course meal, accompanied by trophy and award-winning wines from the show.
Guests will hear details of the judging process from Chair of Judges- Louisa Rose and International Wine Judge, Joe Czerwinski. The top three wine show awards aren’t announced until the lunch – so make sure you are in the room to hear who wins:
- 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
WCA will also announce the 2019 South Australia ‘Legend of the Vine’. This prestigious award recognises an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the Australian wine industry.
Now the sixth year in South Australia, previous Legend of the Vine Awards winners include:
2018 Tony Love
