Bubble festival in Marysville!!

The Tf’s spoke to Christine and the team behind the Marysville 2011 Australian Sparkling Wine Show to get an update on the show which is fast approaching.

The show has recieved a record of 209 entries. (We believe its much higher now )

The team went on to explain the 2011 Australian Sparkling Wine Show is proudly supported by Dan Murphy’s and is the only ‘dedicated’ competition available to producers of sparkling wines in Australia.

This years event is truly a celebration of ‘Australia’s Best’ sparkling wines with five days of entertainment and events in the Marysville region, in the week leading up to the Melbourne Cup – October 25 to November 1, 2011.

This year’s judges are some of the best in the Australian Wine Industry and include: Sparkling Wine Show Chairman John Ellis from the famous Hanging Rock Winery, industry icon Tony Jordan from the Yarra Valley, and Ian McKenzie from South Australia - widely regarded as Australia’s best judge of sparkling wines.

All credit to the Marysville Committee for a fantastic effort in getting entries from more than 100 producers across Australia. It is a ground-breaking show for the wine industry and wonderful to see such broad support from producers.” said John Ellis.

Show judging takes place in Marysville on October 25, 2011 and begins a week of festivities for the town including a “Breakfast with Lee Freedman”, Golf Day and Exhibitor Tasting, Gala Awards Dinner at the Black Spur Inn, and Cup Day Festival.

This is a great opportunity for food and wine lovers to join us in Marysville for five days of sparkling festivities” said festival committee member Graham Taylor.

“The Sparkling Wine Show supports the growth of the Marysville Triangle region and we encourage you to visit and take in some of the renowned Marysville hospitality – and some of the top Australian sparkling wines!”

So bring on the bubbles we say!! The Tf's cant wait for the last week of October.
