The Loch Food and Wine Festival is returning this June for its prestigous 10th annual celebration of regional tastes, produce, entertainment and more. A family friendly affair, there will be activities for the kids, cooking demonstrations, tasty samples, wine to try and more.
Residents of the tight-knit Loch-Nyora community often host festivals and events designed to encourage and welcome visitors to the area, and any weekend is a good weekend to venture into serene South Gippsland. You're sure to find plenty of interesting things to see and do including quaint little towns, cosy cafes, a craft brewery and winery or two and plenty of pictureseque fields and parks upon which to throw down a picnic blanket and simply relax.
Named after former Governor of Victoria, Henry Loch, Loch is located approximately 106km from the Melbourne CBD or roughly 65km from Frankston. Taking the South Gippsland Highway toward Phillip Island, veer off on the A440 after Lang Lang and it'll lead you right into the heart of this picture perfect country town.
A popular area drawcard, the Loch Food and Wine Festival held in June is an opportunity to meet face-to-face many of the local growers, producers and makers in a fun, festive environment while sampling some of the regions flavours and wares before taking home a few favourites to share with family and friends.
Organised by a highly qualified crew boasting a wealth of function and event experience, along with some of the best foodies in the business, guests are guaranteed a polished event that will leave their tastebuds yearning for more. Wine, cheese, berries, organic produce, freshly brewed coffee, deli meats, sweet treats, baked potatoes, farm fresh bread, arts & crafts will all be on offer, along with much more, and you can learn all about the growing/making process, as well as how to get the best from the produce, by speaking directly with and watching the experts.
Sample some wine while taking in a free cooking demonstration, browse the market stalls and give the children free rein to enjoy the entertainment provided especially for them in a safe, family friendly environment.
