Bigger and better

Growth and success of the Shedfest event has led to its expansion across the entire Yarra Valley. Previously held only within the Warbuton Hwy wineries, the event now has smaller wineries participating along the Maroondah Hwy to Healesville and the Melba Hwy to Yarra Glen and beyond. Providing a much wider festival experience.

Only an hours drive from Melbourne, once you are in the Yarra Valley you can use the map to pinpoint the wineries you would like to visit, so why not tempt yourself, your family and friends and come to the Yarra Valley and enjoy the Shedfest Wine Festival.

All wineries have sheds; usually housing crushers, barrels, tractors and other equipment vitally important to the production of fine wines. Every year, on the second weekend in October, wineries in the Yarra Valley will open their sheds to house two days of fabulous food, fine wine, live music and entertainment. If your type of festival is one where you can take it easy, taste local produce, experience the charm of small vineyards, be captivated by stunning views, chat to the owners and winemakers, tap your toes to some fine tunes, play pétanque, take croquet lessons, lawn games and watch the kids have fun, all while sipping delightful wines… then Shedfest Wine Festival is for you.
