DESCRIPTION

After the directives put in place by the Australian Government regarding size of events, unfortunately we will be cancelling the Albany Wine & Food Festival on 4 April.

Join us for a memorable day of award-winning wine, craft beer, local food, live music and talented chefs!

 

Held at Eyre Park, a picturesque landscape in the heart of Albany, the festival will feature 40+ brands from across the Great Southern.


You can sip, taste and savour 100+ wines from Great Southern wineries, then buy a glass of your favourite to match with excellent food by the local foodies while enjoying live music from local artists. Then top up your cellar by supporting the locals and buying a bottle or two! 


All the favourites are back for 2020 including the Wine Theatre presented by Great Southern Development Commission with three wine appreciation classes with Foni Pollitt, an award winning Sommelier and the Harvey Norman Cooking Theatre with our guest chefs Paul West formerly from River Cottage Australia, Derek Lau from MasterChef 2019 and the local Amy Hamilton from the awarding winning Liberte taking centre stage with MC Anne Gare sharing their cooking tips and inspiration.

After a cooking demo, head over to the Bankwest Stand and get a Paul West cookbook signed by himself and take it home to make all the goodies there!


Want to indulge, then the The Lake House Denmark VIP Lounge is also returning bigger and better! It’s an exclusive retreat with wine, Wilson Brewing Co beer and food by Wheels and Peg included, and now with more furniture and near the live music, it has that VIP feeling!


Come to the festival to discover new wines, taste great food, listen to local artists and enjoy a cooking demo or wine class, whilst overlooking the lake at Eyre Park!

Great Southern Development Commission supports the Albany Wine & Food Festival.
