EventAustralian Highlands Wine Show

Wines with Altitude

2020 NOTICE: The Australian wine industry, like many others, has been impacted heavily by Covid-19, add to that the devastating impacts smoke taint has had on the 2020 vintage also, and sadly the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Australian Highlands Wineshow due to these impacts. The Southern Highlands Food & Wine Association looks forward to hosting the awards again in 2021.

Australia’s only exciting event that judges all the best wines from the high altitude wine regions of Australia from all the major high altitude cool climate regions including the Southern Highlands , Orange, Mudgee, New England, Tumbarumbra, Hilltops, Canberra District and Adelaide Hills compete for the prestigious title of the AUSTRALIA’S BEST WINE WITH ALTITUDE.

The Australian Highlands Wine Show is open to all Australian wines made from grapes sourced from vineyards above 500 metres in altitude.


2019 RETROSPECT: The 2019 awards nights was a great night celebrating the industry and of course the medal and trophy winners. It was held at PepperGreen Estate in Berrima NSW and were joined by Chief Judge Toni Patterson MW to present and discuss this years show along with our 2019 sponsors.
