The event will mark the group’s 19th regional wine show and will feature more than 150 entries, across 19 classes.
“We are going to change things around and have a bit of fun this year,” coordinator John Brady Payne said.
“We are going ask the judges for their opinion on wines that should be consumed on the beach, by the bush, by the bay or on the balcony.”
Mr Payne said the night will include “thinking and drinking”, his self-professed favourite pass-times.
“Everyone who likes the company of other people and finds a glass of wine to be a social lubricant should come,” he said.
“People will get to chat with some of the judges and the head judge about what to look for in a nice wine.
“They’ll get to understand why they enjoy a particular type of wine and perhaps be introduced to something they haven’t tried before.”
The public tasting event will be held from 6-8pm in the downstairs function room at Mollymook Golf Club, tickets $20.
Guests will be treated to a selection of wines to taste, live acoustic music, finger food and local cheese.
The winners all categories will be announced at the conclusion of the event.
The expert panel of judges who will assess the wines include chief judge David Morris winemaker at Morris Wines in Rutherglen, Victoria; along with Nick O’Leary winemaker at Nick O’Leary Wines in Lake George/Bungendore; and Deb Pearce sommelier from the Southern Highlands.
