Eat and drink where you live

Almost without exception, everything you need to feed your family and friends, your hotel guests or restaurant customers is grown, made or produced right here in Victoria. From our fine winter citrus to our British breeds of beef, our award-winning cheeses and delicious coastal seafood to our delicate white and robust fortified wines - we have a bountiful supply of stunning fresh produce and exceptional wines grown, harvested or made within a few hours of wherever you are in Victoria.

The brilliant quality, variety and vitality of food and wine in Victoria is cause for celebration all year around and that’s exactly what we like to do, keeping the spotlight on the producers and growers, winemakers and chefs, thinkers and innovators who make Victoria a paradise for food lovers every week of the year.

Supported by Department of Business & Innovation, Put Victoria On Your Table is a state-wide campaign led by Melbourne Food and Wine to encourage consumption of, and loyalty to, high quality food and wine of Victorian provenance. 

Put Victoria On Your Table holds two themed seasonal campaigns each year. As a result, Victoria's bountiful new-season produce is celebrated at restaurants and wineries across the state for The Roast Collection in June and The Spring Graze in September.

You can also Put Victoria on Your Table at home by buying delicious seasonal produce from your local fresh food or VFMA Accredited Farmers' Market. Below is a range of handy tips on how to Put Victoria On Your Table year-round:

  • Stock your cellar with Victorian wines and brews
  • Drop by and say hello to producers in their picturesque locations. Visit regional Victoria for a weekend of   food and wine experiences
  • Buy Victorian produce direct from the markets and growers at your local Victorian Farmer’s Market
  • Look behind the menu when dining out – and the label at your local supermarket – to understand where your produce is coming from
  • Book tickets for one of the delicious Put Victoria On Your Table events across the state throughout the year
