Feast on Victorian produce, craft beers, and wines at Malvern's food festival
East Malvern’s leafy Central Park will be packed with stalls selling Victorian gourmet produce, food trucks, craft beers and local wines at the third annual East Malvern Food and Wine Festival.
Melbourne restaurants will open pop-up stalls for the one-day festival on Sunday, November 17, and you'll be able to sample wines from wineries scattered across Victoria’s northwestern region including Turners Crossing, Innocent Bystander, Balgownie Estate, Red Edge, Noble Red Winery, Silver Spoon Estate, Chambers Rosewood Vineyards, Linnaea Vineyards, The Farmer & The Scientist, Rob Dolan Wines, Montalto, Heathcote Winery, Trentham Estate, Wine Selectors, Bike and Barrell, Buckshot Vineyard and Mount Avoca. You can also get amongst tastings from Great Ocean Road Gin and Mr Black cold brew coffee liqueur.
Peckish? Dive into food from 48h Pizza and Gnocchi Bar, Mushiki Dumplings, Nepal Dining, The Greek Shop, The Smoke Pit and more. You can even stock the Christmas pantry early with locally produced cheeses, gourmet condiments and Christmas puds. Entertainment will be programmed by the House of Voice.
The festival is a family-friendly event – kids can check out roving entertainers and pick up a few tricks from a visiting master magician's classes.
Entry to the event is free, but wine tasting packages are available from $37.50.
