The Yarra Valley’s smaller winemakers invite you to join them for The Shortest Lunch in 2017.

Celebrate the shortest weekend of the year with a moving feast of entrée size meals, it's the perfect way to meander around the Yarra Valley’s boutique wineries and savour great food, wine and music, without the hustle and bustle.

To take part in this progressive dining experience, simply pay $15 at the first winery you visit, where you will receive a souvenir tasting glass. This glass allows you to taste and enjoy the wines and food at all the participating wineries that you visit over the day.

Plan your day by following the menu options available at each winery from appetiser through to dessert, which are available up to the value of $18 per item.

Make a weekend of it by staying overnight and exploring more of the Yarra Valley while you’re here, but be sure to book ahead.

The net proceeds of this year's Shortest Lunch entry fee will go to a local community group. Since 2009 we have raised well over $40,000, which has been shared by the local CFA brigades and SES.

FOR GROUPS of 10 or MORE PEOPLE ARE MOST WELCOME, PLEASE CALL 0419 284 643 or contact the wineries that you plan to visit to confirm availability and access.
