If wine and cheese are your thing, then this is the news you want. There’s a one-day festival held on Sunday 5th March that will give Melburnians – and visitors! – the chance to experience 50 local wineries, cheese and artisan producers all under the one roof.

Held at the Port Melbourne Timber Yard, which will be converted into an epic wine and cheese delicatessen that has to be seen to be ‘brie-lieved’.

Running across two mouth-watering sessions, foodies can meet each boutique producer, sample free tastings and support local vendors by buying goods brought from all corners of Victoria and beyond.  

he live music, DJs and roving artists will keep guests entertained while their taste buds take a trip around Victoria, whilst the little ones keep busy in the dedicated kids’ zone complete with face painting, lawn games, and more interactive games.

And for those looking to get their feet dirty and take home some delicious prizes on the day, Wine & Cheese Fest will be running their famous Grape Stomp Competition between 3pm and 4pm. Expressions of interest are now open,
