The East Malvern Food & Wine Festival is once again set to grace the idyllic landscape of Central Park, East Malvern, for its sixth edition on Sunday, 19th November 2023, from 11 am to 5 pm. This gastronomic delight will feature a spectacular array of Victoria’s finest wineries, skilled food artisans, and engaging live entertainment.

Back by popular demand, the festival will uphold its traditional format, offering free public entry and optional tasting ticket packages for wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts. As you amble through the verdant park, you’ll have the chance to sample exquisite wines from renowned Victorians estates such as Balgownie Estate, Linnaea Vineyards, and Red Edge Wines, to name just a few.

But it’s not just about the wine – local breweries Hop Hen, Grand Ridge, and Two Doors will also be showcasing their craft beers. For spirits lovers, the Mornington Peninsula’s Great Ocean Road Gin will be serving their finest distillations. Celebrate the local flavours at the much-loved Tom Pockett Cellars Expresso Martini and Champagne Pop-Up Bar, or try the new El Jimador Tequila and Benriach Single Malt bars for some exceptional tequila and scotch whisky tastings.

Hungry? Feast on a variety of dishes from renowned Melbourne food trucks, local restaurants, and gourmet pop-up stalls. Indulge in everything from Spanish paella to 400 Gradi pizza, with a delectable dessert selection rounding off the menu.
