 2021 NSW Wine Awards Stewarding Positions

Applications for 2021 stewarding positions are now closed

Each NSW Wine Awards, positions are available for wine stewards wishing to gain experience in the NSW Wine Industry and the Australian show judging system including the digital Showrunner judging system. 

There are usually 4 stewarding days available each year and we ask that each steward be able to fulfil a minimum of one whole days work (no half days).

There are 7 to 8 stewards required each day of the show to efficiently complete the duties required. Stewards are required to be on site at 8am and for the whole days judging until completed.

We currently host the Judging Process at the ICC Sydney, where the ICC team  make sure everyone stays safe with rigorous hygiene protocols and correct social distancing. The NSW Wine team is also dedicated to making sure everyone is well looked after and there will be no out-of-state judges taking part this year.

Light lunches/tea/coffee etc are provided for all stewards and wine show workers during each day and invitations to judges dinners may also be available to stewards. 

As well as the traditional payment of wine (one case per day of stewarding) we also aim to organising some wine judging training for stewards to take place during the judging week, so that this activity is educational for participants, and a useful thing to put on any CV.
