Good Food & Wine Show returns in 2021

16th April 2021 | Eativity editors

The Good Food & Wine Show (GFWS), presented by Citi, is back with a fresh look in 2021 to take you on a sensory journey of the very best food and wine that Australia has to offer.

This year marks the show’s 21st birthday, with festivities kicking off in Sydney from June 24 to 27 before continuing on to Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne later in the year. For the first time, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a Thursday evening session, as well as morning and night sessions to allow for a more relaxed day out.

Tickets for the Sydney show are now on sale, with the four-day line-up focusing on local hospitality, producers and winemakers from the Hunter Valley to the Southern Highlands, as well as interstate regions including Margaret River, Barossa, McLaren Vale and Clare Valley.

With more than 600 wines, 60 types of cheese, plenty of celebrity chefs, masterclasses and live cooking demos, the GFWS has something to satisfy every palate.

In addition to celebrating local producers, winemakers and distillers, the GFWS is excited to be supporting the hospitality industry. Some of Sydney’s finest eateries – including Nour, newly launched Ria Pizza by Brent Savage and the two-hatted plant-based restaurant Yellow – will all be taking part in the new Eat Local Restaurant Pop-up.

Everyone’s favourite Spanish chef, Miguel Maestre, will fire up foodies with his live cooking demonstrations at the main cooking stage, The Kitchen by Harris Scarfe.

Other top chefs who will be demo-ing live include Matt Moran, Colin Fassnidge, Justine Schofield, Silvia Colloca and Sammy Jakubiak, who’ll all be inspiring you with their everyday entertaining recipes that you can try at home.

For cheese-lovers, the Smelly Cheese Project will be guiding curd-nerds through artisanal cheese masterclasses including Australian and international cheese varieties. Plus, you can sample your way down Cheese Lane, from cheddar and truffle to brie and dairy-free.

Visitors can also experience the best of British and enjoy a traditional morning or afternoon tea at the English Garden, with a selection of the finest UK cheeses from Somerdale, along with the mandatory scones, cream and Tiptree Jams.

Still hungry? Visit the Good Food Village, a destination for visitors to try and buy artisan products from small producers across Australia. The market-style hub will have everything on offer, from truffles and small-batch honey to hemp.

The Citi Wall of Fortune will also be popping up at this year’s show, with thousands of prizes up for grabs. Plus, for the first time, Citi will be curating a special showbag with a selection of some of the best produce the GFWS has to offer.

With more than 220 of Australia’s latest and greatest producers, this year’s GFWS will not disappoint. Whether you’re a dyed-in-the-wool foodie or are just looking for some fresh home-cooking inspiration, get your taste buds ready for a delicious day out.
