I love food, I love wine and I love a good day out! Why have I never been to the Good Food and Wine show in Brisbane? Absolutely no idea, but I can guarantee you, I will never miss another one.
Being a member of quite a few Meet Up groups, my inbox is full of invitations to coffee get-togethers, dinners, lunches, movies, you name it, I get it. Unfortunately I don’t go that often as I just don’t have a lot of spare time and quite often by the time nightfall arrives I just want to relax at home with a nice glass of wine.
When this invite appeared, I instantly accepted the invite, as it was for a Saturday afternoon that I actually had free, and I am so glad I did. This has got to be one of the most fun ways to spend a day.
$25.00 entry fee plus $3.00 for a wine tasting glass and you are good to go.
Wine, wine and more wine. I love a fresh and crisp Sav Blanc and Geison is always a favourite of mine 🙂
Food, food and more food. These gorgeous sweet treats from ‘Sweet Crumbs’ that are opening a new coffee/cake store in Bulimba very shortly.
Now that is my kind of Theatre!
Good wine deserves a good glass, and these 6 Cab Sav’s were made all the better in beautiful Reidel glasses at the Reidel Wine Theatre.
There are so many wineries represented at the Good Food and Wine show that each little taste test adds up to quite a few glasses full as you wander around for a few hours.
Fortunately there is plenty of food sampling to enjoy along the way. More substantial offerings are available for purchase and I wish I would have had room for a pide from ‘Turkish Gozleme Pide and Bread’ as they looked amazing but were too big and there was not enough room after everything else I enjoyed.
My favourite finds were:-
Canadian Maple coated cashews from The Gourmet Nut Co.
Brandy infused Mettwurst from Barossa Fine Foods.
Champagne Macroons from Nic&Rocco.
My favourite Sav Blanc was from Villa Maria Estate.
My only complaint is that we did not go in until 1.30pm, really needed to go earlier, as I did not get to about 1/4 of the show, so who knows what other wonderful goodies I missed out on.
Get a group of friends together and enjoy a fabulous day, soaking up all the wonderful offerings from this amazing country and our friends across the ocean.
Sydney, Melbourne and Perth have the Good Food and Wine show as well you can check the dates for next year here.
