Auction puts spotlight on NSW wines

A unique auction aims to put the spotlight on the various New South Wales wine-growing regions.

The NSW Wine Industry Association and Langton’s have joined forces to hold the inaugural First Planted Auction on September 2, 2016, showcasing the oldest and most-diverse wine producing state in the country.

NSW Wine wants to open consumer's eyes to the range of intriguing and world-class wines coming from the state.

“Winemakers from across NSW have been winning awards and producing outstanding vintages for decades, says NSW Wine Industry president Tom Ward (below). 

"We want to showcase our capabilities and successes as a wine-producing state. This event showcases not only premium product, it also gives the public an opportunity to get their hands on rare wine and experiences that are otherwise impossible to buy.” 

The event is designed as a celebration of the best of the NSW wine industry, opening the door for guests to discover legends, leaders and rising stars. 

The First Planted Auction is the first of its kind, offering rare wines, unrivalled experiences and the chance to dine with industry legends. From limited-release magnums, exclusive winery tours and more, every guest will have the chance to secure a once-in-a-lifetime taste of NSW wine.

Prizes include the last double magnum of 2014 Lake’s Folly Cabernet Sauvignon and a three-night Mudgee getaway including a full-day chartered helicopter ride, lunch at the acclaimed Pipeclay Pumphouse and VIP treatment at the signature event of the Huntington Music Festival.

The event will be hosted by well-known comedian Jean Kittson, Master of Wine Andrew Caillard and Plonk stars Chris Taylor and Nathan Earl.

The first planted auction and lunch will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground and tickets are $250 per person, which unfortunately puts the event beyond the budget of many mainstream wine drinkers - although you can bid online via the Langton's site. 

If you are cashed up and do want to attend, tickets are available from
