The Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy is the most prestigious and sought after wine award in Australia.[1][2] The trophy is a memorial to Jimmy Watson (died 1962),[3] who established the iconic Jimmy Watson's Wine Bar in Lygon Street, Carlton, a suburb of Melbourne.

The trophy is awarded annually at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards, conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, to the producer of the best one- or two-year-old, dry, red wine.
