The Good Food & Wine Show 2021

UPDATE Tuesday, June 22: Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney, the Good Food & Wine Show has been postponed and will now run from Friday, Spetember 17–Sunday, September 19. Head to the Good Food & Wine Show's Instagram for more info.
A four-day fiesta of local eats and drinks is set to heat up Sydney this winter, thanks to the new-look edition of the Good Food & Wine Show. Taking over ICC Sydney across six sessions from Friday, September 17–Sunday, September 19, the festival will deliver a sumptuous spread of tastings, pop-ups, cooking demos and other delectable happenings, celebrating top Aussie chefs, producers, winemakers and eateries.
You can watch your favourite culinary stars in action as they cook up a storm live on stage — including Miguel Maestre, Justine Schofield, Matt Moran and more — then hit the all-new Eat Local Restaurant Pop-Up to sample bites from much-loved eateries like Nour, Ria Pizza + Wine and Yellow. The Good Food Village will feature an array of market stalls where you can browse, try and buy artisan products from across the country, while the experts from The Smelly Cheese Project host a series of masterclasses to delight even the most avid of cheese nerds. Dairy lovers will also want to head to Cheese Lane for samples, too.
As always, the drinks will be flowing. There'll be intimate food-matched tastings in the Wine Selectors Tasting Room, a program of fun wine education sessions hosted by the Riedel Drinks Lab and a swag of spirits-focused pop-ups — including Fever Tree's Ultimate Gin & Tonic Bar — offering masterclasses, tastings and more.
General admission tickets clock in at $30; however, if wine's your true passion, you can pick up a Wine Lover ticket for $60 and enjoy extras like a Riedel tasting glass and exclusive access to some very special drops.
