Sponsored Event Experience

More than 60 of Australia's best winemakers and wine authorities will come together for a series of truly world-class wine experiences and master classes hosted by Aaron Brasher, Peter Forrestal, Frank Wilden, Ken Gargett, Tony Harper, Tony Love and Bernadette O'Shea.

Event Background

The genesis of the Celebration of Australian Food & Wine Noosa Style was in 2003. About 150 attended, including 15 of the crème de la crème such as Stephanie Alexander, Greg Doyle, Matthew Evans, Gordon Gebbie, Neil Hadley, Stephen Henschke, Huon Hooke, Philip Johnson, Peter Doyle, Luke Mangan, Bruce Tyrrell and Matt McConnell. There was a welcome cocktail party and swish barbecue on Noosa's Main Beach where, in a first for food festivals the tables were turned and critics including John Lethlean, Lizzie Loel, Lyndey Milan and Peter Howard, prepped and cooked for the guests. There was lively debate about Australian food and its anticipated future; a sensational seven-course degustation matched with many Australia's legendary wines; and a tour to the hinterland's Coolabine Farmstead Goats Cheese Farm.

Here in the shade of a large marquee on a freshly mowed paddock and home to herds of Anglo-Nubian goats, winemakers and providores offered tastes from their quirkily cobbled together, hewed timber and corrugated iron stands, before a lavish lunch on long white clothed tables, championed the innate essence of the paddock to plate concept.

The opportunity to mix with key players in the food and wine industries from producers who grow and catch the ingredients to chefs, winemakers and restaurateurs, who weave their magic to create gastronomic delights of international renown, is reflected in the ever-evolving program.
