Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival

The popular Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival is a highlight on Bendigo's Autumn calendar, taking place in Rosalind Park in the centre of Bendigo

Saturday 28 April 2018, 11am to 4pm
Tickets on sale now.

The Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival will again transform the tranquil Rosalind Park into an open-air wine and food festival. Offering festival-goers the chance to celebrate the end of harvest with Bendigo region winemakers, it’s the perfect opportunity to sample all the handcrafted vintages and styles of local wine in the garden setting of Rosalind Park, right in the heart of Bendigo. 

The event will have something for everyone – Bendigo region wine, regional street foodies offering a range of cuisines, wine masterclasses, and live music from The Northern Folk and Erica Hawkey.

Entry tickets include souvenir festival glass and complimentary wine tastings with more than 60 wines on show. It’s a perfect chance to try something new – think rosé, sweet sparkling, crisp whites and full-bodied reds. There’s also a non-tasting ticket available if you just want to soak up the festival atmosphere. Bring along a picnic rug to sit and soak up the festival atmosphere. Or opt for indulgence by booking one of the VIP marquees. Perfect for a staff get-together, client function, or with a group of friends.
