Application to become an Associate Judge

The Show: The Australian Small Winemakers Show is Australia’s leading showcase of wines from wineries across Australia and New Zealand that process less than 500 tonnes of fruit per vintage. In 2024, over 800 entries from over 150 wineries were entered into the show.

One of the goals of the Australian Small Winemakers Show is to offer the opportunity for wine industry representatives to gain experience in wine show judging by becoming associate judges. Through the associate judging program, it is the hope of the Australian Small Winemakers Show committee that individuals gain experience that will benefit themselves and the broader wine industry.

In 2024, in addition to the team of 6 experienced judges, there will be six (4) associate positions available.

The Australian Small Winemakers Show would like to extend an opportunity for suitably qualified or experienced individuals from the wine industry to apply for an associate judging position for 2024.
