Wine Show of Western Australia 2017 – The Winners

Celebrating 40 Years - Wine Show of WA 2017You may have seen on my social media channels last night that I attended the Wine Show of WA Gala Dinner where they announced the 2017 Trophy Winners. This followed the Top 50 Tasting I attended a week ago where I tried some of the highest awarded wines of the show (and some of the trophy winners announced last night). I feel very honoured that I was invited along to both events to celebrate the fantastic wines of Western Australia.

Today on the blog I’d like to share with you the list of trophy winners (see below) and you can also view the full results booklet here: Wine Show Western Australia – 2017 Results Book.
