West Australian Boutique and Single Vineyard Wine Show Celebrates 20 Years of Excellence

Boyup Brook 6th December

The Blackwood Valley Wine Industry Association (BVWIA) annually presents the Western Australian Boutique and Single Vineyard Wine Show, a hallmark event that has been at the forefront of showcasing the finest wines from the local region and small producers across the State, for over two decades.

This year’s edition, sponsored by My Vintner and the Shire of Nannup, was a celebration of exceptional craftsmanship in the wines and diversity across WA’s wine regions. The event, held at the Nannup Recreation Centre, hosted an impressive line up of WA wine industry experts including; Tony Davis, Damian Hutton, Ryan Aggiss, Feleasha Prendergast, Liv Maiorana, Matt Godfrey, Phil Hutchison, Ulrika Larsson, Jen Bound, Andrew Bretherton.

The panels judged an extraodinary 240 entries from a unique blend of Blackwood Valley Geographical Indication (GI) wines and entries from Western Australian Boutique producers (defined as those who annually crush less than 250 tonnes), as well as Single Vineyard wines from Western Australia, where there is no restriction on the size of the winery entering these distinctive wines.

“We are thrilled to reach this significant milestone for the WA Boutique and Single Vineyard Wine Show. This event has become a showcase of excellence, highlighting not only the quality of wines produced from the Blackwood Valley region, but also the talents of small producers from across the State. We extend our sincere gratitude to major sponsors My Vintner and the Shire of Nannup and the generous support from Vineline, Vine Torque, Breight Group, Ease, AHA, Boyup Coop and SWAT.” said Craig Nield, President of the BVWIA.
