The annual Yarra Valley Shedfest Wine Festival returns for its 18th incarnation this 12-13 October, proudly celebrating the providence of grape-to-glass production of premium locally produced wine.
Hosted by Yarra Valley Smaller Wineries Association (YVSWA), the collective two-day event sees 13 small and family owned wineries and vineyards open their cellar doors and wine sheds and celebrate the new vintage in style with over 80 wines on tasting and the best value entry in town – with two day entry and souvenir glass entry for just $15.
Immersive and sensory, family-friendly Shedfest offers fine fare, premium wines with exclusive releases, unique gastronomic delights- with each winery offering different cuisines, cellar-door specials, as well as live music and entertainment, including lawn games at some venues.
The event is the perfect opportunity to curate your wine list for Christmas and organise Christmas presents that pair perfectly with the stories of their creators.
The continual growth and success of the annual Shedfest event has led to its expansion across the entire Yarra Valley. The participating wineries stretch along the Warburton Highway to Seville, Maroondah Highway to Healesville and the Melba Highway to Yarra Glen.
This year participating wineries include Badger’s Brook in Coldstream, Billanook Estate in Chirnside Park, Boat O’Craigo in Healesville, Elmswood Estate in Seville, Kellybrook Winery in Wonga Park, Payne’s Rise in Seville, Seville Hill in Seville, Six Acres in Silvan, Soumah in Gruyere, Steels Gate Wines in Dixons Creek, Tokar Estate in Coldstream, Whispering Hills Vineyard in Seville, and Yering Farm Wines in Yering.
The event has over 80 wines on tasting, exclusive cellar door releases and special discount offerings at a number of wineries. In addition, visitors will have the chance to really delve deep into the spirit of the winery by learning about the wines directly from the hands that make them, and the winemakers.
In addition to wines – each winery has curated a delicious entrée- sized menu to accompany the relaxed experience, with menu offerings ranging from home made apple pies and cheese platters to traditional Italian fare, slow and low brisket and and breakky favourites like bacon and egg in brioche, Indian inspired dishes, Nepalese nibbles and dumplings, Vietnamese varieties of Banh Bao and Rice Noodle Salad, and gourmet tasters like venison pie and locally sourced roast veggies and quinoa.
Design your itinerary by winery or by food offerings across over a dozen participating wineries.
In addition to the best value ticket in town, the event patrons can enjoy the fact that they are contributing to local community groups, with the YVSWA raising well over $80,000 towards groups including the local CFA and SES.
