Many of these wines come from boutique vineyards which only produce small amounts of wine for sale so the show is a great opportunity for enthusiasts to sample some lesser known brands. Featured wineries for 2018 include Hollick Coonawarra, Sunshine Creek Yarra Valley, Terindah Estate Bellarine Peninsula, Lanes End Macedon Ranges and Riversdale Estate.
Many of the wines on show are from boutique vineyards and might not otherwise be readily available.
