DO NOT DISTURB: MFWF ANNOUNCES FIRST HOUSE OF FOOD AND WINE HOTEL 


From 16 to 25 March 2018, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival presented by Bank of Melbourne will call the Hotel Lindrum home.

STAY: For the first time, Festival goers can have the ultimate MFWF experience with an overnight stay at the House of Food and Wine. Chefs Matt Stone & Jo Barrett (Oakridge Restaurant and 2017 MFWF Hostplus Trailblazers) will design the hotel breakfast, mini bar and in-room dining menus. Experience classic room-service dishes reimagined into sustainably sourced, modern updates.

CONCIERGE: Overnight guests will have exclusive access to the House of Food and Wine concierge, who’ll open up a world of events, tables at iconic Melbourne restaurants and perks available only to those in the know.

BAR: Melbourne’s best sommeliers and bartenders will curate a list of unique cocktails and award winning Victorian wines to match a bar menu crafted by Matt and Jo from local, sustainable produce, all exclusive to the House of Food Wine.

DINNER SERIES: The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival will take over the kitchen for a ten-day celebration of Victoria’s world class growers, winemakers and producers with a sustainable vision. Be part of a global movement when you dine in the House of Food and Wine Hotel at the dinner series co-curated by ZeroFoodprint. Each night, an international or interstate guest chef will offer their take on sustainable eating over five courses with matched wine from a master Melbourne sommelier. 

EVENTS: Hotel guests won’t need to wander too far from their room to experience special one-off events in neighbouring White Lane and Flinders Lane. Be persuaded that dim sum and Riesling are a match made in heaven (25 March), enjoy classic Spanish fiesta food at the Moritz y Movida Laneway Fiesta (24 March), and dine and dance the night away at the Flinders Lane Neighbourhood Poolside Party (23 March).
