Why Should I Enter?

The Melbourne Royal® Wine Awards presents wine-makers large and small with the chance to enter their products and have them benchmarked by industry experts.

There are many reasons to enter the Melbourne Royal® Wine Awards, including: 

  • The Melbourne Royal® Wine Awards is Australia’s leading national wine awards, offering Exhibitors the opportunity to benchmark their wines against industry standards. 
  • In reporting results to Exhibitors, exhibit scores are represented on distribution graphs (where there is sufficient data to do so) enabling Exhibitors to see how their wines rank against those of their peers. 
  • Medal-winning Exhibitors will be provided with the Melbourne Royal® Wine Awards Marketing & Promotional Tool Kit to assist with promoting their win and marketing their wines with a seal of quality. 
  • Gold Medal-winning Exhibitors who have demonstrated consistency across three consecutive years (2018, 2019 and 2021, noting that the Melbourne Royal® Wine Awards did not run in 2020) with the same wine will be awarded a Consistency of Excellence Medal (see page 6 for details). 
  • Medal-winning Exhibits will be promoted through the Melbourne Royal® Wine Awards associated events.
