Fireside Yarra Valley 2021
This ten-day festival showcases the Yarra Valley's cosiest winter offerings — and yes, that means wine in abundance.
After a false start earlier in the month (thanks, Lockdown 5.0), Fireside Yarra Valley 2021 kicks off this weekend celebrating the wine region's finest winter offerings. The timing couldn't be better if you're looking for the perfect excuse for a post-lockdown, out-of-town jaunt.
Running from Friday, July 30–Sunday, August 8, the program is set to plate up a slew of events for all palates from dinner feasts and pizza parties, to overnight stays and fireside brunches. There will also be scores of opportunities to sample some of the Yarra Valley's finest vino.
Settle into a French-style prix-fixe Sunday lunch at the renowned Dominique Portet Winery (August 1), join mates at Stefani Estate for an afternoon of sangiovese and sausage (July 31), and indulge in the chicest of brunch sessions courtesy of Domaine Chandon (August 2 & 3) complete with blood orange mimosas, sparkling wine and a lavish four-course spread. This year's fun wraps up on Sunday, August 8, with A Fiery Feast presented by celebrated wine labels Jayden Ong and Handpicked. Here, expect top local produce cooked over charcoal, live tunes and free-flowing wine, all enjoyed fireside at the Jayden Ong property in Healesville.
