In 2017, the internationally acclaimed Melbourne Food and Wine Festival presented by Bank of Melbourne (MFWF) will shine a global spotlight on Victoria’s world-class food and wine industries. More than 250,000 food and wine lovers are expected to gather across the state for the 25th celebration, which will run from 31 March until 9 April.

The 2017 MFWF will take place as the world’s leading food influencers – chefs, restaurateurs, critics and food writers - look to Melbourne for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 announcement (4 – 6 April).

Hallmark event series MasterClass (1 - 2 April) will boast a roll call of presenting chefs whose restaurants have featured on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, including Peruvian cuisine’s biggest champion Gastón Acurio (Astrid y Gastón, W50B #30) and Australian-born Thai master David Thompson (Nahm, W50B #37).

Visit the inaugural House of Food and Wine, tucked down a Melbourne laneway, and see the banks of the Yarra transformed into a foodie playground at River Graze. Or go regional with 24 Regional World’s Longest Lunches outside of Melbourne showcasing the best produce Regional Victoria has to offer.
