The House of Food and Wine

A unique addition this year and the home of our Festival. Features a bar, laneway, gallery and private dining space. We’re throwing open our doors and welcoming you to our house for the 10 days of the Festival. 

Tucked down a laneway in Melbourne’s CBD, the House of Food & Wine is just like a real home, with dining and lounge rooms – even a gallery. We’re hosting sit-down dinners, wine tastings and block parties, and our bar will be open from midday every day. Make our home yours over the 10 days of the Festival.

Festival Background

Melbourne Food and Wine Festival presented by the Bank of Melbourne is an annual state-wide celebration of Victoria’s food and wine industry that attracts more than 250,000 attendees to a diverse program of 200+ events.

 Run by a small not-for-profit organisation, the Festival has grown over its history from grassroots beginnings with only a handful of events in 1993, to now being recognised as Australia’s pre-eminent food and wine festival.

 In March, food and wine lovers indulge in events that fill Melbourne’s labyrinthine network of restaurants, laneways, lights-turned-down basements and dizzying rooftops and spill into spectacular regional Victoria.

Bringing the World’s Best to Victoria

The who’s who of the culinary world have been hosted at MFWF including Nigella Lawson (UK), Jamie Oliver (UK), René Redzepi (Denmark), Heston Blumenthal (UK), Andoni Luis Aduriz (Spain) and Thomas Keller (USA).

 Brand Victoria

The Festival plays a key role in developing the reputation and brand of Victoria’s food and wine industry through visiting chefs acting as brand ambassadors and sharing their experience of our state’s food, wine, produce and people.  Furthermore, the Festival continues to attract international media coverage that shines the light on Australia’s culinary credentials.
