The Royal Queensland Food and Wine Show (RQFWS) will be holding a Grape Grazing Night at the Brisbane Showgrounds on Friday, 7 July.

The Grape Grazing event will give the general public a rare chance to sniff, swirl and sample almost 2,000 wines, including the Royal Queensland Wine Show (RQWS) award-winners from the new vintage of season which carry a tick of approval from the judges.

Wine lovers will not only have the opportunity to get their hands (and tastebuds) on exceptional wine, but they can also indulge in award-winning products from the RQFWS, with grazing stations featuring a selection of Australia’s finest cheese, lamb and beef.

This will be the event’s third year running, after around 600 people tasted their way

through more than 1,800 of the nation’s finest red, white and sparkling at the 2016 Grape Grazing by Night event.

The RQFWS is the first capital city wine show of the season, and the first to judge the 2017 vintage in Australia.

Tickets are on sale now at the RQFWS website.
