Grape Grain & Graze Festival

Grape Grain & Graze Festival

Hall 6, Sydney Showground 2 - 6pm


The KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show is one of Australia’s most prestigious wine shows. Dating back to 1826, this annual competition judges wines on variants including complexity, fruitiness and balance.

At the conclusion of the judging the doors open for the Grape, Grain & Graze Festival – an afternoon of fabulous wine, brews, fine food and live music.

Presented by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW, spend an afternoon tasting incredible wines from over 2,200 entries from the KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show, enjoy tasters from the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show and satisfy food cravings at grazing stations laden with Sydney Royal medal-winning food.



How do I make my way around the room?
The room is split into red and white wine tasting areas. Wines are grouped 
by varietal.  Beer and cider can be found at the bar within the dedicated 
beer garden

Where are the Trophy Wines?
The trophy wines are located in the Trophy Room, which is located as 
indicated on the map towards the back left corner.

What did a wine score?
Have a look in the Results Catalogue located on wine barrels around the 
room. Results are listed by Class order. The score and any medal the wine 
won will be noted.

Why is there a maximum pour size?
There are many wines available to taste at the event and we want to ensure that our guests have the opportunity to experience several wines.

Why has some of the wine run out?
Unfortunately, we don’t have enough wine for everyone to have a taste of everything and there may be wines that 
are more popular with guests than others are.

Why isn’t the white wine chilled?
The white wine is not chilled so that you can experience and taste the wine as the judges do in the judging 
process. Chilling wine dulls its taste and flavour, so serving it at room temperature allows all aromas to be at 
their peak.

I’m hungry!
A wide range of medal winning produce will be showcased on ‘grazing tables’ for all
attendees to enjoy – the cost is included in your ticket price.

Why can’t I take my bag in to the event?
For the safety and comfort of all guests, we have a cloakroom available for large bags to be held on your behalf.
