Welcome to the ASWS

The Australian Small Winemakers Show (ASWS) is held in Stanthorpe, arguably Queensland’s most respected wine producing region.

It was originally established in 1987 by the wine sub-committee of the Stanthorpe Agricultural Society and has grown to be the most prestigious wine show for small winemakers in Australia and New Zealand and one of the fastest growing shows on the annual wine circuit.

The show is run by a dedicated group of volunteers from all walks of life. They are all interested in the promotion of the Queensland Wine industry and the appreciation of Queensland wines.
