The Festival is a showcase of wines produced from grapes grown only in the Heathcote wine region. It celebrates all the grape growers and winemakers who have helped to make Heathcote a name associated with some of Australia's finest wines, in particular Shiraz for which Heathcote is internationally renowned. However, Shiraz is not the only variety to perform in the region; increasingly we are seeing other varieities coming to the fore - Sangiovese, Marsanne, Viognier, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. On cooler sites Riesling and Chardonnay can perform exceptionally well too.
The Festival is the ideal opportunity to taste these wines; this year the Festival will have over 50 wineries presenting around 200 wines available for free tastings and purchase by the glass or bottle throughout the weekend. Another favourite and important activity at the Festival is the Tasting Seminar program
All this tasting is supported by a delicious range of regional food and produce, live music and entertainment for the kids.

The Heathcote Wine and Food Festival truly is a party for your palate.
