Wine and Cheese Fest



Trade Event
When: Sunday, April 02, 2017, 11.30am - 5.30pm
Where: Meat Market, North Melbourne
  The Wine and Cheese Fest is about good wine, good cheese and a few other of life's pleasures!

We're proud to bring you a great selection of local and international producers for the 5th time! Join us on Sunday 2 April 2017 at the atmospheric heritage Meat Market building in North Melbourne.

Meet the local wine and cider makers, cheese producers, local beer brewers, olive oil, charcuterie and other smallgoods producers. The festival supports local, hand-made products - come along to find out how they are made and how to best enjoy them!

See, taste and learn about cheese making and wine tasting at one of the Master Classes (included in your entry ticket). Listen to live Jazz at the main stage while sipping on wines and eating cheese, then head to the courtyard area to dance the calories away to some DJ beats.

And… for the more adventurous and young at heart, be a part of the Grape Stomp Comp to win wine and cheese to take home.

To assist our festival exhibitors, we created a token system. Tokens are redeemable for 30ml to 50ml of wine/cider piccolo glass or one cheese tasting. This is to ensure our festival vendors are reimbursed adequately for their effort and festival goers have the opportunity to enjoy a bit of everything that's on offer.

Tokens are available to be purchased as part of the tickets online (cheaper option) or at the venue on the day. You are welcome to opt in for a full glass or bottle of wine or a cheese platter at the festival to enjoy or take home.

Tickets (including all fees) on sale at the following prices:
Entry Only + Festival Glass to keep = $20 online or $25 at the door
Entry + 5 Tokens (worth $10) + Festival Glass to keep = $30 online or $35 at the door
