Home Australia Vote for Australia’s Best Wine Venue!

Vote for Australia’s Best Wine Venue!

Just as promised, we can now reveal Young Gun of Wine’s Top 50 wine-centric Australian venues!

This Top 50 have been recognised for their dedication to championing wine, while ensuring they are approachable and fun for the everyday consumer.

“Australia offers one hell of a good time for wine lovers and there’s a high bar of quality in a national sense, married with a strong sense of identity and place wherever you go,” said WINESLINGER Editorial Director, Nick Stock. “That makes this list one very handy reference for both locals and visitors right across the country.”

The finalists of YGOW’s inaugural WINESLINGER awards were determined by the votes of over 100 of Australia’s leading sommeliers and winemakers. WINESLINGER’s Editorial Directors, Stock and Mike Bennie, then did the hard yards, whittling down the over 300 acknowledged pubs, bars and restaurants to the final 50.

As part of the awards, YGOW is giving you the opportunity to have your say on who should take out the People’s Choice award for Australia’s favourite wine venue. Follow the link before Sunday 17th June to submit your vote!

The overall winner and the People’s Choice recipient will be announced at the Young Gun of Wine Awards, to be held at MONA, Hobart on Monday 18th June.
