If you like to spoil your taste buds with an array of delectable foods or you’re partial to a well put together amuse-bouche, you won’t want to miss out on one of Australia’s most prestigious food and wine festivals.
The 2018 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival will place you right in the centre of foodie heaven. A gastronomic adventure awaits you like no other! And the variety is going to be astounding! We don’t just mean a variety of food (which there’s plenty of) but also a variety of thought-provoking discussions, lively events and breathtaking scenery. This year’s MFWF will focus on sustainably sourced produce and food’s role in creating community.
The full festival experience
One of the most exciting highlights that has everyone buzzing is the opportunity to explore regional Victoria. Don’t get us wrong, Melbourne is certainly the bustling hub of exciting, cutting-edge taste creations, combined with entertainment and atmosphere. But regional Victoria also provides these elements in a unique manner integral to the community encompassing each place.
Over 20 regional communities around Victoria are hosting spectacular long lunches featuring local, seasonal produce and unique flavours. There’s also a vast array of events, workshops, and mouthwatering meals overlooking rolling hills and country sunsets to look forward to. It’s a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and experience food preparation from its very beginning; from garden or paddock to plate. The only problem? How to get to the best events without wasting time travelling in between!
Don’t miss a thing with a private jet
Cue, you’re very own private jet. Fly to Victoria’s many regional and private airports to make the most of this ten-day festival (and fit in as many flavours as possible!). Create the ultimate program for your festival experience, combining the edgy discoveries from international chefs showcasing in Melbourne, to the awe-inspiring dedication of local producers in rural Victoria. Escape to the quiet valleys in the morning, and return to the city to sip carefully concocted cocktails by the glorious Yarra River in the evening. With a private jet, you can achieve the best of both worlds and experience MFWF to its full extent.
