Boutique Yarra wineries to show off their wares

Wine lovers in Victoria should put the weekend of June 25-26 in their diaries. 

The Yarra Valley winter wine festival The Shortest Lunch is returning in June after a two-year hiatus.

No fewer than 12 family-owned, boutique wineries across the valley will be offering two days of unlimited wine tastings and tasty bites.

All the participants are members of Yarra Valley Smaller Wineries and there will be over 80 wines to taste along with live music and special offers to guests.

Patrons will pay $50 a ticket giving access to the festival on both days as well as receiving a souvenir wine glass to keep.

The festival showcases some of the lesser-known producers of the Yarra Valley, including Billanook Estate, Boat O’Craigo, Brumfield Winery, newcomer Fin Wines, Kellybrook Winery, Payne’s Rise, Seville Hill, Steels Gate, Sutherland Estate, Tokar Estate, Whispering Hills and Yering Farm Wines. 

The Shortest Lunch offers the chance to meet the makers and sample dishes from around the globe - from traditional Italian fare from nonna’s kitchen, paella, kranskys, Mexican street food and Middle Eastern kebabs. 

A percentage of proceeds from this year’s Shortest Lunch entry fee will go to Make-A-Wish Australia, with the event having raised over $85,000 shared amongst local CFA brigades and SES since its inception.
