About the Orange Wine Show:

The Orange Wine Show has been running since 1999 and is a great opportunity for the wine producers of the Orange Region to benchmark their wines and to see the overall direction of the Orange Wine Industry. The Orange Wine Show is also an opportunity to invite industry professionals and wine writers from outside the region to judge and provide feedback on our wine. Also beginning in 1999, the Orange Wine Festival incorporating the Orange Wine Show has become one of the most important industry and consumer events on the local wine industry calendar.
