If your type of festival is one where you can take it easy, taste local produce, experience the charm of small vineyards, be captivated by stunning views, chat to the owners and winemakers, tap your toes to some fine tunes, play pétanque, take croquet lessons, lawn games and watch the kids have fun, all while sipping delightful wines, then Shedfest Wine Festival is for you.

Now in its 14th year, growth and success of the Shedfest event has led to its expansion across the entire Yarra Valley. Only an hours drive from Melbourne, once you are in the Yarra Valley, you can use the map to pinpoint the wineries you would like to visit. Previously held only within the Warbuton Hwy wineries, the event now provides a much wider festival experience due to smaller wineries participating along the Maroondah Hwy to Healesville and the Melba Hwy to Yarra Glen and beyond.
Entry to the Yarra Valley Shedfest Wine Festival is only $15 and you will receive a souvenir glass which will be your ticket to taste all the wines on offer at each of the participating wineries. Proceeds will also support a local community group. There will be plenty of food on offer and moderately priced at all of the wineries during the course of the day.
So why not tempt yourself, your family and friends and head to the Yarra Valley and enjoy the Shedfest Wine Festival.
