Grampians Grape Escape organisers are gearing up for their 25th annual food and wine festival after an official launch in Melbourne.
The April festival is a month-long celebration of the Grampians region’s best gastronomic producers and winemakers.
The Grampians Grape Escape on April 30 and May 1 at Halls Gap, featuring more than 100 provedores and producers as well as beer, wine and cider artisans, is expected to attract a crowd of more than 10,000 wine lovers and foodies.
Grampians Grape Escape committee chairman and Northern Grampians Cr Kevin Erwin was thrilled with the festival’s launch last week.
“Now celebrating 25 years, the event is one of regional Australia’s longest running food and wine festivals attracting people from all over to our stunning region,” he said.
“With a series of fantastic umbrella events leading into the festival weekend, such as Duck, Duck, Mousse at Steel Cutters Cottage, Avoca River Festival, an afternoon soiree at Royal Mail Hotel, Mount Stapylton’s dinner and Pork and Pinot at Greenvale Farm, the month of April caters for everyone and will be a celebration of the best food and wine from the region.”
Headline chef and television personality Miguel Maestre joined Cr Erwin to launch the event.
“We are going to have a great time at the Grampians Grape Escape this year. I’m excited to be headline chef and can’t wait to arrive in the Grampians – a spectacular part of the world – and start cooking up my favourite dishes using some of the best produce in Australia,” he said.
