Family-owned smaller wineries of the Yarra Valley opened their sheds, barrel rooms and cellar doors on the weekend welcoming locals and visitors to enjoy the wine, food, music on offer as part of the 16th Yarra Valley Shedfest Festival.
Perfect weather enticed wine lovers, families and social groups into the valley to meet the winemakers, enjoy fabulous local produce, music and games, and take in stunning views across the valley.
Originally, a showcase event for the Warburton Highway wineries, Shedfest this year spread its wings to wineries along the Maroondah Highway and in between, providing an opportunity for longtime Shedfest visitors to discover even more of the valley’s charming wineries and vineyards.
Proceeds from the weekend will add to the more than $30,000 raised to date for local community groups.
The event is hosted by Smaller Wineries Yarra Valley that are now looking forward to their annual celebration of the Winter Solstice with the Shortest Lunch Wine Festival on 24 and 25 June.
