While details to next year’s Artisans Bend Wine and Cheese Fest remain scant, tickets are already available and those that hold off on picking up their entry to an un-brie-lieveable day out are likely to miss out. At least, that’s what’s happened with past editions.

We do, however, have a first look at a grate lineup that is only going to get gouda. Take a look below, but get your tickets herewine stomping competition

The Wine and Cheese Fest Lineup

Confirmed for the 2022 February edition of the Wine and Cheese Fest are the following local and artisanal makers of some of our best-tasting, mouth-watering and thirst-quenching produce, who will be turning The Timber Yard into a veritable delicatessen.

BoatShed Cheese will be in the building with its handmade artisan French-style soft cheeses from out Dromana way while the Salami Shack will be trucking in its selection of salami and mettwurst that come from a heap of small family businesses located in and around the Barossa Valley.

That’s Amore Cheese will also be onsite with its incredible array of award-winning cheese that are 100% natural, vegetarian, and free from preservatives and artificial colours. That’s Amore will also be present in the form of Cannoleria, serving up crunchy golden pastry goodness stuffed with delicious ricotta. But when it comes to pastry, you can’t go past Posh Brioche without taking a bite.

Wine will not be in short supply thanks to the likes of  John Gehrig Wines, Mount Avova Winery, Newbridge Wines and Rob Dolan Wines already on the cards. The Prosecco Van will also be rolling on through while cider will be provided by Eddies Cider and Cheeky Rascal Cider

The Wine and Cheese Fest Program

Keep an eye on this section because although it’s under construction, the Wine and Cheese Fest will be loaded up with masterclasses from experienced cheesemongers, artisans sommeliers and fabulous winemakers. A Kids Zone will also be set up so that your little ones can have their own fun without you spoiling their day.

Local bands and DJs will also be in attendance at Wine and Cheese Fest for a bit of extra fun in between sips and bites. And it wouldn’t be the Wine and Cheese Fest without the Grape Stomp Comp. Everybody who participates wins a prize—obviously wine or cheesy. It takes place between 3-4pm.
