Each year Hentley Farm Wines eagerly awaits the Annual Marananga Wine Show to see how our latest releases will fare against our peers. And it’s safe to say, we’re delighted with the results!
The Marananga Wine Show showcases wines only from the Western Barossa and is the only sub-regional wine show in Australia. With the vineyards in the sub-region of Western Barossa long known for their outstanding quality and producing some of the Barossa Valley’s finest wines, the MWS has helped realise this level of excellence.
The wines are judged to Australian wine show standards attracting high-calibre, National wine show judges which contributes to the credibility of the show and the value of feedback to winemakers, whilst the public tasting provides guests with the rare opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with growers and winemakers, taste 120 wine entries and cast their vote for the People’s Choice award.
