East Malvern Food and Wine Festival 2019
Spend a Sunday in the park tasting wine, beer, cider, cheese and ice cream.
East Malvern's humble Central Park isn't quite as grand as the one in NYC, but it'll certainly be tastier with the East Malvern Food and Wine Festival coming to its green lawns on Sunday, November 17. The weather will (surely) be warming up by then and it'll be a wise call to spend a day in the park — especially when you add 20 Victorian wineries and a handful of breweries into the mix.
Go along to taste vino from Bendigo, Rutherglen and Heathcote regions, beers from Cheltenham's Bad Shepherd Brewing Co, G&Ts from Great Ocean Road Gin and espresso martinis from Mr Black, and taste till your heart is content and you've forgotten tomorrow is Monday.
Food-wise, there'll be snacks from 48h Pizza & Gnocchi Bar, Mishiki Dumplings, Nepal Dining, The Greek Shop, The Smoke Pit and an ice cream stall where you can really go all out and treat yourself.
You'll be able to stock up on artisanal produce (including lots of cheese) and, if you or your mates have kids, you can send them to a magician masterclass. It's also dog-friendly, so bring along your fur babies, too.
The event is free to attend — you'll just need to buy your food and wine as you go — but you can pre-buy wine-tasting packages if you're super keen.
East Malvern Food and Wine Festival runs from 11am–5.30pm.
