The Frankston and South Eastern Wine Show is put together by the Frankston Amateur Winemakers Guild whose members produce home made wines from all sorts of ingredients including fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers and yes, even grapes on occasion.

The 2016 event was an outstanding success with 470 wines judged and 195 medals awarded emphasising the very high standard of entries received.

Entry cost is $10 per person and includes a complimentary tasting glass.

Wines on show are made using grapes, other fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers among other things.


This is a fabulous opportunity to taste a broad range of high standard home made wines.

While you're there why not take a step back in time and enjoy the history on display at the Briars Historic Park, particularly the homestead built in 1851 and occupied by Alexander Balcombe. His attempt at producing wine from the 40 hectares of vineyards he established on the property was far less successful than the majority of exhibitors who'll be on hand at the Frankston and South Eastern Wine Show 2017.
