The Wine Communicators of Australia (WCA) has announced that early-bird tickets are now available for the 2018 Sydney Royal Wine Show Trophy Winners’ lunch.

The lunch will once again take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney and this year will be taking place on Friday, 10 August. This is the first time the WCA has offered early-bird tickets to the lunch, which offers attendees the opportunity to hear from the judges as well as taste the winning wines alongside a three-course meal.

Speaking about this year’s event, the WCA said: “Joining guests at this year’s lunch will be first-time Chair of Judges for the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW, KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show, PJ Charteris. PJ has been involved in the judging show system for over 20 years across several regional and state shows and will lead the expert panel to determine the trophy winning wines – a selection of which will be tasted for the first time by lunch attendees.

“We are also pleased to have Ms Fongyee Walker MW, the KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show’s selected International Judge for 2018 in attendance to share her experiences of the judging journey. Ms Walker is a Wine Consultant and Educator in both English and Mandarin based in Beijing, China.”

The early-bird discount offer 10 per cent off the standard ticket price for those who purchase tickets before 14 May and applies to member, non-member and table bookings. The ticket price also includes admission to the Exhibitor and Trade Tasting event which takes place at Sydney Olympic Park the following day.

The Trophy Winners Lunch further sets the stage for the 2018 NSW Legend of the Vine announcement and presentation, which recognises an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the success of the wine industry, with previous winners including:

  • 2017 – Clive Hartley
  • 2016 – Iain Riggs
