They say every wine has a tale to tell … and on Saturday, June 8 visitors to Relish Food and Wine Fest will have a chance to sample some of the finest “stories” the region has to offer.
A host of award-winning regional wineries from across the Wide Bay Burnett will offer free tastings as part of the $10 ticket price.
They include Bellbird Vineyards, Kingsley Grove Estate, Vinter’s Secret Vineyard, Moffatdale Ridge Wines, Crane Wines, Bridgeman Downs Cellars, Tipperary Estate and Sirromet Wines.
“A lot of people don’t realise we’re lucky enough to have world-class vineyards right on our doorstep,” Councillor for Sport, Recreation, Open Spaces and Events Darren Everard said.
“The Wide Bay Burnett Region is home to a growing number of boutique wineries that are really helping to put our region on the map including Vinter’s Secret in Isis and Crane Wines in Kingaroy.”
Mt Cotton-based Sirromet Wines has collected more than 500 national and international awards since opening its doors in 2000.
“Relish is a showcase of the finest local food, wine and regional produce our area has to offer and it’s not to be missed.”
Tickets are still available for a series of offsite attractions in the lead up to Relish Food and Wine Fest, including a four course degustation lunch at COAST Restaurant and Bar in Hervey Bay on Saturday, June 1.
