AAVWS Awards Announcement – Live Online

6pm, Friday 6 November, Facebook Live

The Legendary AAVWS Awards Long Lunch is the heart and soul of our show.  After all, the whole concept started with a Long Italian Lunch way back in 1999.  This year is the first time in 20 years that the AAVWS Awards Long Lunch won’t happen, and we will miss hosting it, but most of all we will miss seeing all of your smiling faces in Mildura.  While the menu is always a highlight, this year we will have to announce the awards without the fanfare of the five courses and countless matching gold medal wines.

On Friday 6th November, at the conclusion of judging, we will be holding a live broadcast from the spiritual home of the Long Lunch the Mildura Grand Hotel Ballroom.  At 6pm anyone can tune in live via our Facebook page to see the winners announced and hear from the judges about the 2020 show and the wines they were surprised and delighted by.  Enjoy a little bit of the AAVWS spirit from your own lounge room and sit on the edge of your seat as we reveal who will take home each of the nineteen trophies we will be awarding thanks to our many loyal and generous sponsors.  


Changing the World

“The massive impact the AAVWS has had on wine production and consumption in Australia over the last 15 years is now flowing overseas as alternative varieties breathe new life into the UK market and add colour and excitement to the Australian offering.”
