Much-loved wine and food festival returns in 2022

One of the most fun wine events of the year is returning to the Hunter Valley. 

The Lovedale Long Lunch, a much-loved boutique wine and food festival, has been scheduled for May 14-15, 2022. 


After a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19, the progressive lunch will run all afternoon on both the Saturday and Sunday, with leading local chefs teamed up with seven Lovedale wineries to offer guests food, wine and live music al fresco among the vineyards.

Tickets are already on sale at 

The seven host wineries for the Lovedale Long Lunch 2022 are Allandale Winery; Emma's Cottage Vineyard; Gartelmann Wines; Saltire Estate; Sandalyn Estate; Tatler Wines and Wandin Valley.

Tickets are available for either the Saturday or Sunday, or both, and you can visit up to three wineries per day. 

A shuttle bus will run between venues. 

Matt Dillow, owner and chef at Gartelmann Wines and The Deck CafĂ©, Lovedale, said: “Everyone, including our staff and the bands, is pumped for the return of Lovedale Long Lunch in 2022. 

"We are also very excited to welcome back visitors to the region to experience our wines, food, and stunning venues. 

"The feedback we have received already about the return of Lovedale Long Lunch in 2022 has been phenomenal. We are expecting the event  to be bigger than ever.”

Amy Cooper, CEO, Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association, said: “The Lovedale Long Lunch is a signature wine and food event for the Hunter Valley, and it attracts strong visitation and lasting memories. It is great to see the organising committee and operators planning ahead with confidence and we expect this event to once again be a great success."
