To help ease that transition into another Melbourne winter, the team at Welcome to Thornbury is bringing back one of its snuggliest, most tummy-pleasing weekend food events — a festival dedicated to the glorious combo of mulled wine and hot cheese.

The ever-popular party descends on the Northside food truck park from noon, Saturday, May 28, pulling together a selection of hot, gooey creations from some of the city's favourite cheese-slinging vendors, with warming sips to match.

This is where all your cheesiest dreams come true, with the likes of Sparrows Philly Cheese Steaks, Frencheese, Italy & Co, Bear Grilled and Mr Burger serving up signature delights of the melty variety.

Of course, you won't find a better pairing to all that dairy than some hot, spiced booze; especially since the bar will be rounding out its usual offerings with no less than six different mulled wine varieties.

Flavours range from the traditional, to a chilli-spiked version, to a sticky date pudding number and a mulled rosé. And if you can't decide, there's even a multi-pass that'll get you tasters of all six for $30.
