~ Eltham and District Winemakers Guild ~ 

If you're passionate about homemade winemaking, or consider yourself a bit of a wine connoisseur, then join us on Sunday 16 November, 2014 at the annual Eltham and District Winemakers Guild, for the Amateur Wine Show, on from 11am until 2.00pm at The Veneto Club. The show is entering its 45th year and arguably Australia's largest amateur wine show, featuring:-

  • over 500 wines for tastings,
  • a separate professional "boutique" category,
  • an Awards ceremony,
  • artisan cheese and olive oil sales and sample,
  • and workshops and demonstrations in Food and Wine Matching (11.15am) and Homemade Sausage Making with Steve Lamberto of Home Make It (12.45pm).   

We must admit, we're super excited about this year's Amateur Wine Show moving to The Veneto Club in Bulleen, and we're thrilled to be a Principle Sponsor of the show again. Good luck to all our Reservoir and Clayton store customers who have entered their homemade wine into the competition.

The inaugural Fair Food Week was celebrated recently from the 10th - 19th October, 2014, and is co-ordinated by the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA). 

The Fair Food Week "... it’s a time to shine the light on the ‘new story of fairness’ across the food system, from paddock to plate. It’s a week full of intriguing and attractive events around the country".

The Fair Food Week celebrates food sovereignty, fresh, local and community driven food enterprises, farming, community gardens, and invites communities to learn ways to cultivate a better food future.
