Embark on a delicious celebration of the senses

One of Melbourne's most beloved foodie events is back this Autumn!

The Wine and Cheese Fest returns to Williamstown on Saturday 9 March (Labour Day long weekend) with a spectacular line-up of vendors, masterclasses, activities and family-friendly entertainment! Tickets are now on sale!

The Wine and Cheese Fest is one of the highlights of the annual Melbourne Food & Wine Festival and takes places in the newly renovated Seaworks. In this stunning location, against the backdrop of Williamstown foreshore, Melbourne's dedicated foodies can enjoy a feast for all the senses!

The event kicks off at 11am and throughout the afternoon, foodies can leisurely peruse over 50 fine quality wine, cheese and artisan food exhibitors. There will be a diverse selection of gourmet products, plus hot food and specialty arts & crafts stalls on offer!

From wheels of fine cheeses and savoury sauces, pickled preserves and home-style pastries, to smoked and cured meats, luscious desserts and a wide variety of craft beers, ciders and refreshments, the Wine & Cheese Fest will have something on offer for everyone's taste buds.

You can also discover the art of matching wine and cheese together by taking part in a wine masterclass with a top local vintner! Choose from "Prosecco" with Dal Zotto Wines, "Sparkling & Cabernet Sauvignon" with Blue Pyrenees, and "Taste 100 years of Wines" with Mount Avoca winemaker, Matthew Barry in the VIP marquee.

If you want to learn more about cheese, join French cheesemaker Matthieu Megard from L'Artisan Cheese Organic and Gowen Irlen from Melbourne and Cheese and uncover delicious tips of the trade. Plus the "Maestro of Mozzarella" and one of Australia's best makers of Italian cheese, George Linguanti of That's Amore Cheese, will perform a live demonstration of "Mozzarella Making"." A mouth-watering experience not to be missed!

And it wouldn't be the Wine and Cheese Fest without the always popular Grape Stomp Comp! Come help produce as much grape juice as possible and look good while you're doing it!

The little ones can enjoy a dedicated Kids Zone with fun activities all afternoon and there will also be live music and DJs performing amidst the backdrop of the stunning city and seascape views.
