The annual Tasmanian Wine Show showcases Tasmanian wines and recognises and rewards the skill and dedication to quality of Tasmanian grape growers and winemakers. It provides an opportunity for wine producers to compare their wines with other Tasmanian wines.

The Show features wines produced in every corner of Tasmania. The exhibition classes for the Show accommodate all major wine types and styles produced in Tasmania, including red and white table wine, vintage and non-vintage sparkling wine, and dessert and fortified wine. For wine merchants, wine consumers and wine writers, and the Tasmanian hospitality and tourism industries, the Show highlights the best wines that Tasmania has to offer.
