The 2017 Rutherglen Wine Show & Australian Fortified Wine Show are now open for entries and all wineries are urged to consider entering wines in our Shows. With a history going back over a century, there is no doubt that Rutherglen Wine Show Medals are still recognized and respected by wine consumers as a mark of a great wine. We have world-class judges assessing wines from all over Australia & every wine receives confidential feedback as part of the judging process. Well known and reputable Wine Shows still provide a great deal for Wine Producers trying to maintain an edge in a very competitive market environment & Rutherglen is one such Wine Show. Our entry costs are extremely reasonable, our service is first class & our integrity is unquestionable. Give us a try.

The Rutherglen Agricultural Show is one of a few surviving small Agricultural Shows still held in Victoria.
We strive to provide a Show for all the family by retaining the traditions of the old agricultural country shows as well as introducing new features in which the community can participate. Horse events, animal and farm produce competitions and displays of home cooking, preserves, floral displays, art & crafts and photography are all part of our Show each year.
The Show has a Prime Lamb competition with around $1000 in prize money and trophies.
Special events include Men’s Cake & Sauce Competitions, Bush Poetry Competition, Ferret Races, Pet Parade, Dog Jumps,Tug of War, Trailer Backing for Ladies and Nail Driving for both ladies and guys.
We continue to look for new ideas and events we can introduce to keep the Show as an annual event for the community at large.
If you are interested in being part of the presentation of the Show we welcome your assistance, ideas and enthusiasm.
