Wine Events You Don't Want to Miss in 2023

Festivals, concerts, live music, eating out – this is not an exhaustive list of the things we have missed over the last two years. Plenty of events have been subjected to back-to-back postponements, with many eventually being cancelled. But events are returning as everything opens up again – many for the first time since 2020. Here are just some of the many wine-related events occurring in Australia next year that you won't want to miss!


Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

In the heart of Melbourne CBD, you can find the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival at the well-loved Queen Victoria Market. With almost 300 wineries located in Victoria itself, it makes perfect sense for this to be Australia’s greatest food and wine festival. This event promises a unique experience and amazing food and wine that’s worth travelling for. Official dates are still to be confirmed, so keep an eye out for updates on their socials!


Melbourne Good Food & Wine Show 2023

The Melbourne Good Food & Wine Show 2023 is back and ready to provide a fantastic day out for all food and wine lovers. You can find this event at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. There, you can stroll through the show, visit the various stalls and sample all the wine and food that your heart desires. Grab yourself a bottle of your favourite wine as you chat with different winemakers and wine enthusiasts and learn their stories.


Global Drink Wine Day

This one is not just Australian, it’s global! Global Drink Wine Day is on the 18th of February 2023 and is a day to celebrate and spread the love and health benefits of wine. In Port Macquarie, NSW, you can enjoy this day with Port Bus and learn more about the role wine has played in religion, relationships and history.


Hunter Events Wedding & Wine Festival 2023

Another event in NSW! This premier wedding festival returns in 2023 to bring a fun and entertaining festival for the whole family, especially if there’s a wedding coming up. Meet a wide variety of wedding professionals, watch some bridal runway shows, enjoy some live entertainment, and – of course – some wine. 


Wine and Cheese Fest - 10th Edition

Return back to Melbourne for the 10th edition of the Wine and Cheese Fest. This premier food and wine festival has been staged in Melbourne since 2014. This fun fest brings more than just cheese and wine to the table – you can participate in master classes and competitions while you attend too! If that’s not quite your style, you can relax and enjoy the live music, or meet the friendly exhibitors around.
