For wine lovers this is an exciting event held annually in Brisbane. Held at the Mecure Hotel. Showcasing around 100 wine labels with around 600 wines from wine regions around Australia from boutique to internationally recognised labels there will be plenty of styles and varieties to sample. With some imported wines on offer the festival features lots of fine wines and food. This a great opportunity to talk to winemakers and ask questions while you are tasting their wines and sampling varieties that you may have been unsure about or hesitant to buy a bottle of. This event runs from 27th to 29th of October 2017, so if you are in the area worth checking out. A panel of judges award Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in various classes. Food and wine matching classes are on offer and will cover a broad range from -Italian Wine Varietals in Australia to French styles in Australia, regional comparisons, and just about anything you want to know about wine. It will all be on offer and having attended in other years it really is a great opportunity to learn, ask questions and generally get involved. The Brisbane Festival attracts a lot of attention.
