More Than Just Wine

However, Pinot Palooza is more than just a wine festival; it’s a multi-faceted experience. It successfully marries the fun aspects of wine culture with music, food, and the warm, sociable atmosphere synonymous with Australian events. Since its inception in 2012, tens of thousands of people have flocked to the festival to enjoy the unique travelling cellar door experience it provides.

To complement the wine offerings, food providers such as Grandvewe Cheese and Mount Zero will be serving delectable accompaniments. Expect an array of cheese, salumi, terrines, pâté, olives, and more to perfectly pair with your glass of Pinot Noir.
