46th. FRANKSTON AND SOUTH EASTERN
WINEMAKING COMPETITION AND WINESHOW
Key Dates For Winemakers
Peter receives his award from Luigi of Homemakeit at the presentation ceremony
Congratulations also to all the volunteers from the guild,
judges and our sponsors, who made the
2016 event so successful by donating their time,
effort and prizes.
The standard of entries was high again this year.
Out of a total of around 470 wines entered, 195 medals were awarded by the judges:-
The number of medals awarded emphasizes the very high standard of entries received at the wineshow. Amateur winemakers are able to access high quality ingredients (often grown by the winemaker) and then they nurture their own 'individual' winemaking and 'finessing' style to produce the wines that are submitted to our wineshow. Judges at our show are recognised wine industry judges, local commercial winemakers, or very experienced amateur winemakers.
