Langton’s Margaret River Wine Show will return to the region next week for its 16th year.

The 2017 edition of the show will run from October 30-November 2 at Ramada Resort in Dunsborough, with wine assessed by national and international judges.

Hosted by the Margaret River Wine Association, the event has attracted more than 100 exhibitors and more than 750 entries.

MRWA’s Amanda Whiteland said this year’s event was the biggest. “The judging team will be led for the second time by Corrina Wright, and Beijing wine educator Fongyee Walker MW will provide an important international perspective to the show,” she said.

“In line with the wines of the region, the show continues to grow into one of the most exciting events in the country,” he said.

The wine show will conclude with a gala awards dinner on Thursday, November 2 at Black Brewing Co.
