Mulled Wine and Hot Cheese Party

A combination guaranteed to warm your cockles.

To farewell winter for another year, the team at Welcome to Thornbury is bringing back one of its most intuitive warming weekend events — a mini festival dedicated to mulled wine and hot cheese.

Following a successful run in August, the party returns to the High Street food truck park from noon, Saturday, September 1, pulling together a selection of hot, gooey creations from some of the city's favourite cheese-slinging vendors.

This is where all your cheesiest dreams come true, chowing down on lush cheese fondue from Frencheese, mulled wine doughnut balls from Jamm'd, cheesy pierogi from Pierogi Pierogi, a raclette burger from the folks at Mr Burger, and other treats from the likes of The Cheese Rebels, Happy Camper Pizza, Smooth Toastie and Pasta Face.

Of course, you won't find a better drink match to all that rich, melty dairy than some hot, spiced booze, so the bar will be rounding out its usual offerings with six different mulled wines. Available all day, you'll be apple to pick from mulled wine spiked with apple pie, chilli chocolate or cherry — amongst others.

If you want to go all out, that's available to you in the form of a cheese and wine degustation. Four cheeses from Cornelius Cheese paired with four hot and spicy wines — and it'll set you back $35.
