Our mission statement

Major Sponsor




A unique opportunity to be involved in the Hunter Valley Wine Show has become available due to a recent change in show procedures.

As a result of this change we are forming a Glass Washing Team. Members of this team will be responsible for the washing of glasses which will be used for judging.  It is a manual position and involves lifting and stacking of glasses in and out of the glass washing machine.

This is an volunteer role and suitable persons would possess a strong eye for detail and an interest in gaining an insight into the day to day workings of the  Hunter Valley Wine Show.

Required dates and times are as follows;

Sunday August 19th
Show Set Up and Glass washing demonstration – 9am till after lunch

Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st  August

Wednesday 22nd August
Trophy Judging- 7.30am till conclusion of judging aproximently 2.00pm

Thursday 23rd August
Exhibitors Tasting – 11:30am till approximately 1.30pm 


It is not a requirement to be available across all of the above dates and times. Rosters will be tailored to meet the show requirements and volunteers availability.

As there is only limited number of positions available, interested parties should contact our show secretary Abby Burden at secretary@hunterwineshow.com.au outlining your interest and availability.
