DESCRIPTION

Albany Food & Wine Festival presented by Mt Barker Chicken

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

Held at the new Agriculture Society Exhibition Pavilion 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 tapas 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 2021 including the Wine Sessions with Foni Pollitt and the Harvey Norman Cooking Stage with Paul West formerly from River Cottage Australia, Derek Lau from MasterChef and the amazing Anna Gare taking centre stage sharing their cooking tips and inspiration.

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

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

Come to the festival to discover new wines, taste great food and enjoy a cooking demo or wine session, whilst listening to local artists!
