Wine and Cheese Fest – A celebration of the Senses

Quite literally, a sensory overload is expected to hit again at the Meat Market in North Melbourne on Saturday 17 March 2018. from 10.30am to 7.30pm.

The Wine & Cheese Fest is back, and looking to delight all your senses all over again. Is there a better base then combining Wine and Cheese, to start off from on this foodie adventure?
There are over 30 quality exhibitors getting ready to happily showcase and share their artisanal products on the day. From wheels of fine cheeses and savoury sauces, to home-style pastries, pickled preserves, smoked and cured meats, luscious desserts and of course a huge array of wine, ciders and beers for all palates, the Wine & Cheese Fest is a tantalizing feast for both the taste buds and smell receptors.
With the senses of taste and smell taken care of, the focus will be on the sense of hearing, and as always, the Wine and Cheese Fest is accompanied by live jazz music entertainment as well as a DJ in the courtyard area. For a more private and personal audible treat the clinking of glasses will not go amiss.
If the sight of the delicious food and wines is not enough to feed the eyes, the heritage building of Meat Market should certainly provide for that wow effect. From the detailed ceiling to the cobbled floors, it is truly a unique environment which will certainly add to the magic of the event.
Lastly, holding those glasses, and nibbling from those cheese boards, with the different foods and their textures, will ensure the sense of touch isn’t left out. It will certainly tie everything together and ignite all of the senses, which when combined will produce a feeling that is greater than the sum of its parts. At Wine and Cheese Fest it is simply known as happiness.

If that’s not enough, there is much more to this and includes Masterclasses (included in your tickets), learn how mozzarella is made by Giorgio from That’s Amore, learn about wine making from some of the industry leaders, learn about wine and cheese matching. Also, the famous and unmissable Grape Stomp Comp is back, and will see keen stompers competing for the prize of the best stomper squeezing out the grape juice the original way… quite an insta moment! And not to forget – there will be a dedicated ‘kids zone’ for the youngest ones (NB- kids enter for free but must be accompanied at all times!).
Tickets for this event are available for both the morning and the afternoon sessions, and entry includes a Festival glass to take home. A range of ticket options are available to choose from such as the General Entry including tokens for tastings, a Wine Indulgence tickets including a quality boutique wine bottle (RRP>$25) provided by our partners at the Chirping Bird winery in Mornington Peninsula, and, introducing a Last Minute entry tickets for those that just want to grab some last minute bottles or cheese wheels to take home.
