Fongyee will join our two judging panels of expert wine judges Mark Warren (Chairman of Judges), Ray Jordan, Severine Logan, Garth Cliff, Cath Oates and associate judges Dan Charter and Emma Farrelly.

Each year hundreds of wines are submitted by wineries from the Swan Valley and Greater Perth Zone.
