Get A Taste Of The Yarra Valley
Your favourite winter wine festival is back on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of June to bring you all handcrafted wine, delicious bites & live music over two days!
Get a taste of the hidden gems of the Valley with a weekend full of wine tasting, live music, delicious bites and stunning scenery across nine participating family-run wineries.
It's the perfect way to enjoy a break from 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 homemade apple pies and cheese platters to classic Italian fare and American-style BBQ. 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. Not to mention, there will also be exclusive Shortest Lunch cellar-door specials only available that weekend!
A percentage of proceeds from this year’s Shortest Lunch event will go to local community groups, with the event having raised over $97,000 shared amongst local schools and organisations like Make A Wish since inception.
