Food & wine events

If you were given the task of describing the taste of Victoria, you'd be best to start your research at one of the state's many and varied food and wine events. Toast the vintages at parties in Victoria's distinct wine regions and get tips on matching wines to the state's fresh produce from superstar chefs cooking at award-winning regional restaurants. Victoria's fresh produce arguably tastes better when eaten outside and accompanied by live music and good friends – picking your own food or learning how to cook it are definitely bonuses.
