50 wineries, cheese & artisan producers in one day, plus free tastings and masterclasses!

Wine & Cheese Fest will return to Melbourne on Sunday 3rd March 2024, bringing the very best dairy goodness and grape varieties to The Timber Yard for Melburnians to enjoy.

It’s guaranteed to be a ‘gouda’ time!

The 11th edition of the Wine & Cheese Fest will see around 50 artisan producers, from around Victoria and beyond, come together to create an epic delicatessen. There will be free tastings, masterclasses, the opportunity to speak to each boutique producer and, of course, support Aussie businesses by buying produce to savour at home.

Included in the list of the finest producers and providores exhibiting their goods is That’s Amore Cheese, BoatShed Cheese, Schulz Organic Dairy, Long Paddock Cheese & The Cheese School, L’Artisan Cheese, Urban Vineyard, Bellarine Estate Winery, Pizzini Wines, Clarnette Wines and John Gehrig Wines.

Plus, there will be a selection of eateries to enjoy delicious dishes between tastings such as Ummu Gozleme, Porcupine Eatery woodfired pizzas, Athens Traditional Souvlaki and Cannoleria.

It is the perfect event for lovers of fromage and vino, whether a connoisseur or simply someone who wants their taste buds tantalised!

Attendees get the opportunity to learn from cheese producers and wine makers in the free masterclasses. Free to join, everyone can learn about the production, tips and tricks to use in the kitchen and take the first steps to become an aficionado.

And for those looking to get their feet dirty, have some extra fun and take home some delicious prizes on the day, Wine & Cheese Fest will be running their famous Grape Stomp Competition between 3pm and 4pm in the outdoor areas. Expressions of interest are open now and so everyone is encouraged to fill out the form at https://www.wineandcheesefest.com.au/grape-stomp-comp/.
