Wine & Cheese Fest 2023

5th March @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm AEDT


Welcome to the 10th edition of the Wine and Cheese Fest – the Premier Food and Wine Festival staged in Melbourne since 2014.

Have you thought of visiting 50 wineries, cheese, and artisan producers in a day? Well, you don’t have to drive because we will bring them all to you under one roof for the tastiest day of the year!

Calling all people to come along to this premier culinary event where you can meet the producers, enjoy Free Tastings, learn few tricks of the trade at the Free Masterclasses throughout the day and support our local vendors by purchasing selected boutique goods they will bring from all corners of our state and beyond.

The mouth-watering festival will convert the iconic Port Melbourne location into the best and coolest wine and cheese delicatessen. The event is brought to life with vibrant entertainment and some of the most delectable vendors with a strong representation from boutique local producers.

Learning from experienced cheesemongers and chefs, the masterclass stage will teach guests new skills and give greater confidence in the kitchen. The live music, DJs and roving artists will keep guests entertained while their taste buds take a trip around Victoria, trailing many appetizing flavors. And don’t worry if you must bring the kids along – they can enter for Free and will be entertained in the dedicated kids’ zone with face painting, lawn games and more.

Bringing an empty stomach to the event is essential, with The Wine and Cheese Fest’s guests gaining access to some of the finest producers and providores, including That’s Amore Cheese, Schulz Organic Cheeses, The BoatShed Cheese, The Cheese Rebels, Dal Zotto Wines, Rob Dolan Wines, Pizzini Wines, John Gehrig, Santolin Wines, Red Edge, Newbridge Wines, Mount Avoca Organic Winery and many more names you’ve heard of (or not).

The festival attracts a growing number of visitors each year – it is one of Melbourne’s must visit festivals for foodies. This will be an unmissable event – Be sure to pen this one into your diaries!

Stay tuned for the release of the entire Wine and Cheese Fest program, as well as the exciting full list of well-known and loved exhibitors.

To avoid disappointments, book your tickets early as capacity is limited for each session. Based on past years experiences, a sell out event is always a possibility.
