A toast to the Longest Lunch

The sun was out and the smiles shone on the faces of guests at the Regional World's Longest Lunch Bendigo in Rosalind Park on Friday 31 March.

Guests savoured six regionally-sourced courses presented by the Bendigo Winegrowers Association and Wine Bank on View. Bendigo region wines were carefully selected by local sommeliers and wine buyers in a blind tasting to match each of the six courses. Sutton Grange Ancestral Rose, Lome Marsanne Viognier Rousanne, Sandhurst Ridge Nebbiolo, Turners Crossing Cabernet, Killiecrankie Shiraz and Black Estate Shiraz accompanied courses one through six of delicious plates by Wine Bank on View chefs.

A glorious day and a gorgeous table that stretched along the grand boulevard of Rosalind Park greeted the 150 guests attending the lunch.

The Longest Lunch raised $715 from raffle tickets sold on the day to be donated to Kiss Goodbye to MS.

As part of the 2017 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, the World's Longest Lunch Bendigo showcased the stylish food and wine the Bendigo region has to offer.
