Whether you’re a wine tragic, amateur tippler or serious wine connoisseur, there’s something to delight your palate and passion at the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival from May 17 to 20..

Joining the impressive lineup of international chefs is Master of Wine Lisa Perotti-Brown, recognised authority on Australian wines and contributor to Robert Parker’s prestigious global online newsletter.

Lisa will preside over premium old world and selected Australian wines matched to seven degustation courses at the Qantas Best Dinner in the World. Lisa will also join Mike Bennie, Greg Duncan Powell, Peter Forrestal, Ken Gargett and Tony Love at the Australian Wine on the World Stage event, where guests are invited to taste wines and join in the discussion.

This year the Village Wine Marquee serves as a communal talking spot for Australia’s best wine maestros who will share their extensive wine knowledge each day.

Sample wines professionally matched to the various quintessential Australian and global Festival food experiences such as the Asian, Seafood and Hinterland Food Trails; the French provincial and rustic Italian picnics- and many more of the special dinners and Festival events.

Aaron Brasher, Andrew Fleming and Peter Forrestal explore six of the greatest Australian chardonnays at the Wine Australia Landmark Chardonnay Master Class while Mike Bennie and Jane Ferrari get in on the Wine Australia Cabernet Sauvignon Master Class action.
The Festival also welcomes champagne experts Bernadette O’Shea and Julien Marteau from G.H. MUMM with some exciting champagne tastings of both vintage and non vintage champagnes. Over fifty wine kiosks will also serve up tastings throughout each day of the four day Festival. Add another two hundred food and wine personalities, media and producers plus big name entertainers and expect one fantastic Festival celebrating the best in food, wine and fun.
