Wine & Cheese Fest

One of our newest clients, Wine & Cheese Fest, approached Sense to spread the word of their 10th festival in Melbourne far and wide.

Wine & Cheese Fest is gearing up to celebrate its 10th festival and it’s sure to be a ‘gouda’ time for lovers of vino and fromage! The one-day festival will be held on Sunday 5th March and will give Melburnians the chance to experience 50 local wineries, cheese, and artisan producers all under the one roof.

The premier culinary event will see the iconic Port Melbourne Timber Yard converted into an epic wine and cheese delicatessen that has to be seen to be ‘brie-lieved’. Running across two mouth-watering sessions, foodies can meet each boutique producer, sample free tastings and support local vendors by buying goods brought from all corners of Victoria, and beyond.  

Included in the list of the finest producers and providores exhibiting their goods is That’s Amore Cheese, Schulz Organic Cheeses, The BoatShed Cheese, The Cheese Rebels, Dal Zotto Wines, Rob Dolan Wines, Pizzini Wines, John Gehrig, Santolin Wines, Red Edge, Newbridge Wines and Mount Avoca Organic Winery.

Ticket holders will also get the opportunity to learn techniques from experienced cheesemongers and chefs on the masterclass stage throughout the day, teaching guests new skills and confidence in the kitchen.

The live music, DJs and roving artists will keep guests entertained while their taste buds take a trip around Victoria, whilst the little ones keep busy in the dedicated kids’ zone complete with face painting, lawn games, and more interactive games.

And for those looking to get their feet dirty and take home some delicious prizes on the day, Wine & Cheese Fest will be running their famous Grape Stomp Competition between 3pm and 4pm. Expressions of interest are now open,

​​The entire Wine & Cheese Fest program is due to be released soon, as well as the exciting full list of well-known and loved exhibitors.
