The 10th Han’s Café is planned to open later this year in the Reading Cinema Complex in Belmont as part of the Belmont Forum refurbishment.

WA’s premier wine show has a new name.

The Mount Barker Wine Show is now known as the Qantas Wine Show of WA and for the first time this year will feature a new judging class, the AGWEST/JS Gladstone Trophy for wines displaying the most distinctive and best regional character.

The trophy is named after Dr J Gladstone who, while working for Agriculture WA, provided the wine industry with definitions of WA regions and their influences on wine character.

The show’s chairman Tony Riggall said WA had small vineyards that produced wines reflecting the “definition of terroire”.

“Many eastern states wines use different regions and meld these together to create a wine,” Mr Riggall said.

“WA wine is typically made from one region. The JS Gladstone award hopes to reflect this in judging a wine that best represents this principle of terroire.”

The wines must be 100 per cent grown and vintaged in WA and are judged to Australian Judging Standards.

National wine writer James Halliday will be chief judge.

Judging will be held on October 18 and 19, with a gala dinner and trophy presentation on the second day. Exhibitor tastings will be on October 20th, to be followed by the Great Southern Wine Producers Festival from October 21-22.
