IT’S no secret that the Goulburn Valley has become a renowned home for quality wines, with more wineries in the region getting their names out on the grapevine. Not only that, we’re now seeing smaller and newer wineries producing tastes that rival the big names in the business.

Dookie Wine Show chair and Phillips Cellar business owner, Paul Phillips, said, “It’s great to see the smaller wineries have the confidence to enter the show now that they have a little more experience in the industry.”

“The newer wineries are always exciting to taste. They bring unique flavours and wines to really get their names out there and find their own niche within the industry.”

The Dookie Wine Show will announce the region’s best wines at the awards show dinner on Tuesday, 17 September 2019 at the McIntosh Centre, Shepparton Showgrounds. For more information, call 1300 GOTAFE (468 233).
