Regional Victoria's northeast is turning it on again this May with another edition of Feast High Country Festival. The spectacular food and wine festival, which showcases the region's most admired producers, growers and makers, will be held between Friday, May 3 and Sunday, May 19. With over 40 events filling this year's program, there's an incredible selection to choose from. It's a challenging task to pick out just a few highlights — but we've done our best.

On Friday, May 10, Bridge Road Brewers founders Ben and Maria Kraus will host Fermentation Degustation, a four-course dinner that explores everything preserved — from sourdough and sauerkraut to hoppy beer, wine and even gin.

For those looking to get active, Pedal and Taste will feature a leisurely 35-kilometre bike ride that passes through some of the finest wine, olive and cheese makers in the region. The full-day tour, on Saturday, May 11, will take you from Beechworth to Milawa on the picturesque Murray to Mountains Rail Trail — concluding with a private tasting at Brown Brothers. Meanwhile, the cycle tour around Myrtleford and Ovens on Sunday, May 19, includes a hands-on gnocchi making masterclass.

Alternatively, you can round up your most competitive mates for an 'Amazing Race' tournament, hosted by Mansfield Regional Produce Store on Saturday, May 11. Wind your way through country lanes and a traditional garden maze to the finish line-reward — a glass of wine and picnic hamper filled to the brim with local produce.

Finally, we couldn't look past Black Barn Farm's Twilight Apple Pick and Pie on Wednesday, May 8 — grab all the apples you want from the orchard, then have Derailleur Cafe's Eric Bittner give you an unbeatable crash course in pie-making.
