The Australian Sparkling Wine Show (ASWS) is the only dedicated sparkling wine show in Australia. Our objective is to showcase and provide nationally recognised opportunities and benchmarking for Australia’s sparkling wine producers.
Originally the Marysville Sparkling Wine Festival, the ASWS began as a seed that grew out of the ashes of a community shattered by the February 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. Since its inaugural year in 2010, the ASWS has evolved and expanded and is now a renowned inclusion on the Australian wine show calendar. In 2013 it officially became the Australian Sparkling Wine Show, highlighting the event’s national significance.
In 2017 the Committee aims to make the ASWS the biggest and most influential yet. Entries open on 1 August and close 31 August, with judging – chaired by Ian McKenzie – held in Marysville, Victoria on 17 October followed by a Marysville barbeque on 18 October. An exhibitor and trade tasting in Melbourne will coincide with the results announcement on 26 October.
