Taste the Valley

Grab a group of friends and head to the Yarra Valley for the Shortest Lunch. Pictures: SUPPLIED.

Your favourite winter wine festival is back on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June to bring you all handcrafted wine, delicious bites & live music over two days!

Get a taste of the hidden gems of the Yarra Valley with a weekend full of wine tasting, music, food and stunning scenery across nine participating family-run wineries, including Billanook Estate, Boat O’Craigo, Kellybrook, Seville Hill, Steels Gate, Sutherland Estate, Tokar Estate, Whispering Hills and Yering Farm Wines.

It’s the perfect way to escape winter hibernation with your whole family, best friends, and even your fur babies (with most venues being dog-friendly)!

A decadent and diverse selection of meals will be available at each participating winery, with menu offerings ranging from cheese boards to classic Italian fare and American-style barbecue. Kids and those with special dietary requirements won’t miss out either, with most wineries catering for both.

There will be glasses and bottles of wine to purchase and enjoy at the wineries on the weekend. Not to mention, there will also be exclusive Shortest Lunch cellar-door specials for you to bring home with you!

Tickets start at $35 for a day pass and $50 for a weekend pass – which includes all tastings at participating wineries and a souvenir glass to keep. There is also a VIP ticket available again this year for $110, which includes a weekend pass, meal voucher, glass of wine and bottle of wine per person.

A percentage of proceeds from this year’s Shortest Lunch event will go to local community groups, with the event having raised over $100,000 shared amongst local schools and organisations like Make A Wish since inception.
