The Good Food & Wine Show is finally back in 2022 after two years of cancellations, and this year, the show is celebrating its 21st birthday. It’s safe to say, there’s lots to celebrate.

The show is going on a national tour around Australia. It’s first stop is Melbourne, followed by Sydney and Perth and Brisbane in the latter half of the year. Basically, it’s a year long party dedicated to good food and wine. It truly doesn’t get better.

This year, over three-days you can sip over 600+ wines from Australia’s most renowned wine regions, treat your tastebuds with 60 different types of cheeses from the best cheesemakers in Australia and abroad, and be entertained by some of the country’s favourite chefs, including: Miguel Maestre, Justine Schofield, Silvia Colloca, Analiese Gregory, Brendan Pang and Sammy Jakubiak. 

For the self-proclaimed food connoisseurs (us, duh!) and sommeliers, there is a bite and a sip from the best regions in Australia. But the best part? You can purchase everything that you taste. It’s truly the party you can take home with you.

The Good Food & Wine Show will host its ever-famous masterclasses, live cooking demonstrations, RIEDEL drinks lab tastings with Nick Ryan, Cheese Lane tours, as well as the never-before-seen Spirit Fleet, where you can step aboard the Glenfiddich Whisky Wanderer vintage double-decker bus for a whisky tasting, the Hendricks Cucumber Airstream for a cool G&T with an added twist and scotch tastings at the Monkey Shoulder Shaker (a giant cement mixer turned cocktail shaker). 

Undoubtedly, the Good Food & Wine Show is one of Australia’s top culinary journeys to experience a taste of the very best of Australia, right in one place. 

Tickets are now on sale for Melbourne, starting from $33 per person. Browse and purchase here.
