The Tfs were over the moon when we received this press release from Federation Square.

'The 2010 Fed Square Wine Awards were held last Wednesday night in the BMW Edge at Fed Square following the judging of forty-five finalists and more than seventy wines by some of Australia’s leading wine experts including Ron Leslie, Roy Moorfield, Elizabeth Woods, Victoria Sharples and Ralph Kyte-Powell.

Head Judge, Ron Leslie congratulated the winners of the awards and the high standard of the wines entered, “for a small state, Victoria has an amazing number of different microclimates, soil types and terroirs, which means it can produce an intriguing range of wines. Add to this, Victorian winemakers’ love of experimentation: planting new varietals, trying new wine making techniques and applying science to viticulture and winemaking and their pursuit of perfection.”

Other finalists from the Upper Goulburn region included Murrindindi and Delatite Winery.

“The awards highlight the diversity of Victoria’s wine regions and the quality of the state’s wine industry,” said Kate Brennan, CEO of Federation Square.

The Awards are the culmination of the Fed Square Wine Showcase series, which features a public wine tasting from a different Victorian wine region each month.
These monthly showcases were established by Fed Square in 2004 as an initiative aimed at providing regional wineries with an opportunity to promote their wines in a central city location.
In the last seven years, more than 70 Wine Showcases have been held, with in excess of 50,000 people attending and 1420 wineries exhibiting.
