Melbourne Food and Wine Festival

Melbourne Food & Wine Festival is thrilled to announce Sense of Place as the overarching theme for 2016 and invites industry to shine a light on people, produce and places that evoke a strong sense of identity, community and connection to the local environment. From famous dining spots to unexpected venues, rooftop bars to hidden cellars, each year the Festival goes beyond eating and drinking to create memory-making experiences. Now in its 23rd year, the Festival highlights why Melbourne is a world-class gastronomic destination, attracting visitors from across Australia and around the globe. A pop-up artisan bakery rising daily in the heart of the city; a long lunch for 1,500; a rollicking 'low and slow' barbecue opening party; and a global discussion on the future of food were just some of the unique ways that Melbourne's culinary spirit celebrated in 2015.
