2019 Jimmy Watson Trophy Lunch

This is your exclusive preview of the most prestigious wine award in Australia: The Jimmy Watson Trophy.

First awarded in 1962 to recognise the best young red wine in Australia, each year, more than 1300 one or two year old red wines compete for this highly coveted trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards, conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV).


For the first time ever you have the rare opportunity to taste the award-winning wine, meet the winemaker and discover what it truly takes to be the best of the best.
Don’t miss the inaugural event on Friday 18 October where you will have the opportunity to enjoy eight of the 2019 trophy winning wines, paired in flights with a three course lunch. The event will culminate in a tasting of the newly awarded 2019 Jimmy Watson winning wine.


For the ultimate wine connoisseur, a limited release of five highly coveted platinum tables have been made available. A sommelier will guide you through each flight of wines and present an additional previous Jimmy Watson winning wine for tasting.


This is an exclusive behind the scenes experience into the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. You will be seated with one of the five 2019 major trophy winners, and will also be transported to Jimmy Watson’s Wine Bar in Carlton, for the official after party with the who’s who of Australian wine.
If you love fine wine, this event is not to be missed.
