Young Gun of Wine PEOPLE’S CHOICE


The annual Young Gun of Wine Awards searches for, showcases and celebrates Australia’s young wine labels and emerging winemakers.

This year, the 2019 Final 12 of these talents will be in Sydney for a one-night-only event.

Meet the winemakers, try their wines – each will show two wines on the day – and help decide who will win the Young Gun of Wine People’s Choice Award.

The grills of the original Porteno kitchen will be fired up on the day. Guests will be able to purchase a selection of favourite Argentinian snacks to make the perfect match with the Young Guns pours.

Don’t miss your chance to discover the best new winemakers – and wines – in the country.

One day you’ll be able to say you knew them when…

Presented in collaboration with our friends at Best Cellars.

Ticket includes all wine tasting and a Riedel wineglass to take home!
