Welcome to the 27th Melbourne Food and Wine Festival – and welcome to Australia’s home for food and wine.
Over two-and-a-half weeks, many of our award-winning restaurants will be on display, giving guests the chance to try dishes prepared by some of the world’s best chefs, using our state’s finest produce.
And as a renowned wine producer, home to more than 800 wineries and 600 cellar doors, Victoria proudly boasts a wine for every palate.
The 2019 Festival also offers dozens of events in every corner of our state – including 20 Regional World’s Longest Lunches – giving people even more reason to escape the city and experience regional Victoria.
Our Government is very proud to support the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, just as we’re proud to support Victoria’s incredible food and wine producers.
To everyone attending, I hope you enjoy sampling the very best our state has to offer.

The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival offers a fine opportunity to celebrate all the events and trends in the culinary world right here in our city. The City of Melbourne is proud to support the festival in 2019 which will include the River Graze by the Yarra River and many other tempting times at the table.
The Yarra is transformed when chefs, food trucks and festival goers gather on its banks to sample food over three days. I am pleased that the River Graze has a community focus and I invite you to enjoy this free family event with markets, activities and all the fun of the festival.
