Toast to the Coast

Held over the Melbourne Cup long weekend, this iconic two-day festival is one of the most anticipated events on the local calendar, showcasing the very best cool-climate wines and gourmet food from around the Moorabool Valley, Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula.

This year’s event will offer an exciting format change, with more options to discover Geelong’s world-class wine.

Enjoy Day 1 of the event touring the wineries, visiting cellar doors and discovering the delights our region has to offer.

While Day 2 is at the iconic The Pier, where wine producers will come together to offer their finest drops at a beautiful showcase event under the one roof.

The two-day event, just an hour out of Melbourne, offers guests the chance to taste, drink and eat their way across a selection of award-winning wineries while enjoying the picturesque vineyard settings and live entertainment.

This year’s event is set to be a sell-out so make sure you take advantage and book early!

Pack a picnic rug and spend a beautiful Spring day touring our region’s finest wineries.

Each cellar door will deliver a program highlighting the unique experience to be found at their venue, with plenty of free samplings, winery and vineyard tours, new wine releases and rare back-vintage tastings.

Unleash your senses and discover Geelong Wine and this enchanted epicurean region. . . it doesn’t get better!
