Wine & Cheese Fest 2020
A one-day party of gooey cheese, vino and grape stomping featuring more than 60 boutique producers.
There's nothing quite like a Sunday spent quaffing top-notch wine and gorging on cheese. Throw the spotlight on local produce, too, and you've got something even better. In its eighth year, the locally focused Wine and Cheese Fest is taking over a new venue on Sunday, March 8, setting up at The Timber Yard in Port Melbourne for a day of celebrating some of the state's finest cheese, wine and artisanal goodies.
Chat to producers as you enjoy in a parade of free tastings, learn how to make mozzarella at a That's Amore-run masterclass or even hone your squishing skills in the day's grape stomping comp. And there'll be DJ sets and live music providing the soundtrack to your epicurean adventures.
Up for some extra indulgence? Splash out on a VIP ticket ($157) to score a bottle of boutique wine to take home and an exclusive masterclass with Mount Avoca's winemaker Matthew Barry, where you'll get to taste 100-year-old vino.
The Wine and Cheese Fest will run from 12–7pm, followed by an after party on the lawn until 11pm.
