The perfect excuse for a Yarra Valley visit



Been meaning to visit the Yarra Valley but not got around to it? Here's the ideal excuse.

Shedfest, the Yarra's spring wine festival, returns next month after a two-year hiatus.

The event sees14 members of the Yarra Valley Smaller Wineries Association (YVSWA) opening their cellar doors and sheds for a weekend of wine tasting, live music, food and some stunning scenery.

Falling on the weekend after Daylight Savings begins - October 8-9 - Shedfest offers an ideal opportunity to celebrate the turn of the seasons.

A selection of meals - all under $20 - will will be available at each winery, with menu offerings ranging from homemade apple pies and cheese platters to classic Italian fare and slow-cooked brisket.

And if guests would like to enjoy more than a complimentary tasting of a favourite wines, they will be avilable by the glass and bottle, along with some Shedfest Cellar Door specials only available for one weekend.
 

Daily tickets are $35 per person, which gives wine lovers access to tastings at every winery for one day (Saturday or Sunday) plus a complimentary Shedfest tasting glass they get to keep.

Weekend tickets are $50 per person over the two days while children, non-drinkers and designated drivers get free entry. 

The line-up of participating wineries ranges from long-time favourites to relative newcomers including Billanook Estate, Boat O’Craigo, Brumfield Winery, Fin Wines, Kellybrook Winery, Payne’s Rise, Seville Hill, Soumah of Yarra Valley, Steels Gate, Sutherland Estate, Tokar Estate, Warramunda Estate, Whispering Hills and Yering Farm Wines.
