All the best Yarra Valley wine and food at one winery
Part of the 2017 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, the Yarra Valley Wine & Food Festival will enable you to explore the extent of the entire Yarra Valley in one place - the beautiful and iconic Rochford Wines estate in Coldstream.

The festival for those you like some food with their wine, the Yarra Valley Wine & Food Festival is being hosted by Rochford Wines and will coat the lawns of their Coldstream winery in a layer of purveyors of great wine and food, and sprinkle it with art and entertainment.

The event is on 1 April and 2 April 2017, two glorious Autumn days you can spend tasting wines by (to name only a few!):
Balgownie Estate Vineyard Resort & Spa,
Boat O'Craigo,
De Bortoli Wines Yarra Valley,
Payne's Rise Winery,
Rochford Wines,
TarraWarra Estate, and
Zonzo Estate;
and, sipping on beers and ciders by:
Coldstream Brewery,
Hargreaves Hill Brewing Company, and
St Ronan's Cider.

You'll not only be exciting your tastebuds with some of Melbourne's best wines, but a Farmers Market providing a selection of the Yarra Valley's finest produce and food will also be at hand, as well as a variety of food trucks and cooking demonstrations.

On Saturday 1 April, a My Kitchen Rules team from this year's season will make an appearance and give a cooking demonstration, as will "The Age" 2014 Young Chef of the year finalist, Buddha. A My Kitchen Rules team will also be showing you how to rule the kitchen on Sunday 2 April and Sunday's program also includes a lesson in matching wine and food.

As you eat and tipple to your heart's content while overlooking the vines, Chunky Jam and ABBA tribute band, Bjorn Again will entertain you on the Saturday, while the Sunday will be more family focused, with kids entertainers The Dreaming Space and the Lisa Edwards & Michael Cristiano Band providing the entertainment.

The Yarra Valley Arts Wine Barrels People's Choice Art will be on display both days. This unique exhibition comprises 12 wine barrels that have been transformed into amazing pieces of art.

If you love your food and wine this is the place to be over the first weekend of April. You would be an April fool not to!
