Entries are now open for the 6th Langhorne Creek Wine Show. This show is a key event for the Langhorne Creek Grape and Wine Association to recognise and award the winemaking and viticultural talent in the region.

This year’s competition will be judged by a panel of highly experienced and credentialed judges, including Master of Wine Fongyee Walker. China based, Fongyee has a wealth of international experience as a wine judge and educator “I am very much looking forward to judging at Langhorne Creek and learning more about the potential for quality wine from this region” she says about her forthcoming trip “Many of my students in China are not aware of Langhorne Creek, so it would be great to have it more on their radar as a quality Australian region”

Chair of Judges will be wine writer Nick Ryan. They will also be joined by senior judge Kerri Thompson, winemaker and proprietor of Wines by KT from the Clare Valley.

The three associate judges have been selected to represent both trade and industry. Shanteh Wong is Head Sommelier at Quay, Gourmet Traveller’s 2018 Restaurant of the year. Shanteh will judge alongside Robert Cragg from Fleurieu Vintners and Cragg Cru and Leon Talamini from Project Wine in Langhorne Creek.
