From My Kitchen Rules to Merlot, Mamma Mia to Moscato, Kid’s Circus Play to Inspirational Wine Barrel Art, it’s all at the 2017 Yarra Valley Wine and Food Festival… it’s Wine, Food and Music Heaven.
Over two days explore the very best food, wine, art, and entertainment, celebrating Melbourne’s iconic Yarra Valley wine and food region and the end of the 2017 vintage.
The Laneways at the Yarra Valley Wine and Food Festival will be featuring wines from De Bortoli Yarra Valley, Coombe, Oakridge, Seville Estate, Zonzo, Punt Road and many more, plus beer & cider from Hargreaves Hill, Napoleone, Coldstream Brewery, Watts River, Buckley’s brewing and more. For those looking to taste new wines in a more intimate setting, book in for either a Premium Chardonnay or Pinot Noir Masterclass.
The Yarra Valley Wine and Food Festival also features food from some of Melbourne’s best Food Trucks, and local Yarra Valley produce at our exclusive Farmers Market including Yarra Valley Dairy, No Go Sauces, Cunliffe & Waters, and Jam Lady Jam plus many more. If all of that is not enough to keep the foodie or wine lover in you busy, then look out for the cooking demonstrations in Festival Central including a My Kitchen Rules demonstration by one of the most popular teams on this year’s show, and afterwards join the MKR team in the exclusive Channel 7 activation area for photos and autographs. And for the art lover there is the stunning Yarra Valley Arts Wine Barrels People’s Choice Art competition.
