One of Australia"s longest running wine events, the Sydney International Wine Competition is the only international wine show that judges all entries by incorporating appropriate food to ensure that the winning wines are technically excellent and relevant to consumers.
In response to the logistical problems caused by the coronavirus, the dates for the wines have been postponed by one month, starting on July 27 and ending on October 26, 2020. The wine judging will take place in mid-November.
The size of the judging team will be reduced to 11 to ensure that the jury complies with the current NSW social distance rules, while entries will be limited to 1300 wines.
Due to the closure of the international border, this year's jury team members are mainly from Australia, but of course there are also jury team members from New Zealand, but arrangements will be finalized in time if the restrictions are relaxed.
In keeping with the tradition of the Sydney International Wine Competition, the jury will be balanced between technical and stylistic experts, including a significant representation of Masters of Wine.
