Stewards

The Cairns Show Wine Awards committee is currently seeking expression of interest for stewards. Cairns_Show_Wine_Awards-169

Our aim for stewards is not only to provide an experience but to provide an opportunity to gain an insight into wine judging. Our Stewards are encouraged to shadow our judges and learn how to taste wine this experience allows the steward to observe and receive education in wine and can lead to the opportunity to become an associate judge.
