We are proud to be supporting the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival in our 11th year as Principal Partner and helping the Festival celebrate its 30th anniversary. As Melbourne’s bank, we’re here to support the many talented people behind some of our state’s most vital industries.

The Festival has become more important than ever in helping to rebuild the Victorian hospitality and tourism sectors. Through its myriad of programs, initiatives and events, it is enticing consumers back into restaurants and venues. Sharing in locally produced food and drinks is a wonderful way to connect with family and friends in our community, while helping to support our producers, winemakers, chefs, and restaurateurs.
