Shedfest Yarra Valley Wine Festival in the Yarra Valley returns again in October. This two-day weekend event sees small boutique wineries open their cellar doors to taste exclusive releases and vintages.

We love going for Sunday drives, so with a busy weekend, we managed to squeeze in Kellybrook, a nearby winery just out of Warrandyte, in Wonga Park.

Stopped for lunch outdoors in the garden by the old giant Golden Oak tree and tasted some wines at their cellar door. My favourite was the Estate Gewurztraminer 2016, with hints of Lychee, Rose and Turkish delight. Sipping to the sound of live music and flowing conversations in a beautiful garden setting.

This wine festival is the perfect opportunity to explore nearby smaller wineries, meet the winemakers and curate wine lists for Christmas, or presents that pair perfectly with the stories of their creators. The perfect event for the whole family.

YVSWA has raised well over $80,000 towards groups, including the local CFA and SES through this event. What a great way to spend the weekend!
