2021 Royal Adelaide Wine Show Entries Now Open

The Most Prestigious 
Wine Show in Australia

The Royal Adelaide Wine Show is the most prestigious wine show in Australia, featuring over 2,500 wines from over 300 wineries across the country.

Wines are judged by a panel of esteemed judges from across Australia over four days, to determine medal and trophy winners.

Australia's Only National School Wine Competition

The RA&HS has established this competition and seminar as an annual event to lift the profile of those schools that make wine, enable the school’s wines to be judged by a professional judging panel, promote the vocations of viticulture and wine making and be an educational experience for the students involved.


The judges at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show assess the entries each year over four days. To enable a fair and meaningful assessment to be made, the wines are broken into separate classes, for example Aromatic Style, Blends, Varietal Classes (which must contain at least 85% of the specified grape variety), Brandy - and so on. The judges review each class and on receipt of all results sheets applicable to any one class, the Chairman of Judges has the points totalled, checked and then determines the awards. Judges do not have access to the exhibits, apart from the unidentified glasses of wine placed in front of them for judging.

Medals are awarded as follows:

Gold - 95 points & over | Silver - 90 to 94.9 points | Bronze - 85 to 89.9 points


After judging, the top Gold Medal winners are re-assessed to determine the Trophy winners. The Royal Adelaide Wine Show's trophies include one which recognises one of Australia's most renowned winemakers: The Max Schubert Trophy for Best Red Wine in Show, Best White Wine in Show and The Gramp Hardy Hill Smith Prize for Outstanding Wine of Provenance.
