The 9th New England Regional Wine Show. The New England area is unlike any other grape growing region in Australia. This is due to the region's diversity from high altitude (with a good number of vineyards above 1,000m), to cool climate vineyards along the spine of the Great Dividing Range, then along the lower and warmer sites on the western edges of the New England Tablelands. Additionally, winemakers from adjacent viticultural areas were  invited to exhibit their wines . Every year The New England Regional Wine Show invites all vignerons & winemakers, using grapes from these areas to exhibit at the Wine Show. This will be a great opportunity to see the high standard of the local wines and compare them to wines from the other invited region. Wine Show 2014: October 16 - 17. Public Tasting and Wine Appreciation Workshop - Friday, October 17th, 2013.
