Join us for a memorable day out featuring award-winning wine, craft beer, local food, live music and talented chefs!

Held at the Albany Agricultural Society Exhibition Pavilion for the second year, right in the heart of Albany, the festival will feature 25+ brands from across the state.

You can sip, taste and savour 100+ wines from WA wineries, then buy a glass of your favourite to match the delicious tapas by the local foodies, while enjoying live music from local artists. Then top up your cellar by supporting the local makers and buy a bottle or two! 

The Wine Sessions are back hosted by Foni Pollitt, with three sessions available – Regal Riesling, Naked Wines and Que Syrah Syrah.

The Harvey Norman Cooking Stage will be featuring Evan Hayter, Jordan Bruno and Trenton Brennan sharing their cooking tips and inspiration.

Feeling fancy and want to spoil yourself, then The Lake House Denmark Lounge might just be the perfect place for you! It’s an exclusive retreat with Lake House Denmark wine, Wilson Brewing Company beer and delicious food by Marian’s Catering included.

Grab your friends and head to the festival to discover new wines, taste great food and enjoy a cooking demo or wine session, whilst listening to local artists!
