With the wine awards season in full swing, WA festival UnWined Subiaco is a great opportunity to sample many of the new winners in one relaxed setting.

The seventh annual two-day celebration of fine West Australian wines will be the biggest yet - with 65 exhibitors, many of them having come up trumps at recent award shows.

The event - on the weekend of October 28 and 29 - will again be held at Market Square Park on Roberts Road, supported by the City of Subiaco.

It's competition time! Win tickets to UnWined Subiaco

The event will include more than 40 of WA’s best boutique wine producers, with nine new exhibitors.

Many of them have already won awards at August's Swan Valley Wine Show or last month's Geographe Wine Show.

Award-winning wines from the Swan Valley Wine Show include Sittella’s Grand Vintage 2012, which won Best Sparkling Wine; and Faber Vineyard’s Swan Valley Verdelho 2013, which won Best Verdelho at the show.

Last year's Club Lounge will be expanded to include complementary wine with a fantastic selection from Great Southern wine and food.  Undercover tables and seating will provide a peaceful upmarket place to watch the world go by.

Guests will be free to explore the exhibitor lineup and its award winners, and then retreat to the Club Lounge to catch up with friends and other guests.

Live music will come from indie artists The Prefix and Arthur King.

The Club Lounge ticket includes event admission, a premium Plumm souvenir glass, complementary wine from the Club Lounge Bar and gourmet barbecue during the afternoon. Cost is $115 (pre-purchase only) for an afternoon of indulgence. For groups of 10 or more the cost is $99 a head.

For those looking to take their wine-tasting to a higher level, the organisers are again offering a premium souvenir Plumm wine glass for the event. The Plumm Tasting Ticket is available for pre-purchase for $36 and at the gate for $40.

General admission costs $26 for pre-purchase or $30 at the gate and includes entry, souvenir glass, access to wine sessions and cooking theatres, live music and complementary wine tasting.

Wines will also be available to buy by the glass to drink at the event, or by the bottle to take home.

A wine locker will be available to store bottles until visitors are ready to leave.

UnWined Subiaco will be open from 11.30am to 5.30pm on both days.

Tapas-styled food will be available for purchase.
