With over 80 events, including 7 signature events, the 2019 Orange Wine Festival program is brimming with a huge range of exciting events.

These include behind-the-scenes access to wineries, meet-the-maker opportunities, fantastic culinary experiences paired with award-winning local wines, wine education sessions and a celebration of this unique cool-climate wine region - where altitude is the difference!

The theme for this year's Orange Wine Festival is 'Bud Burst’. October is a month when after months of dormancy through Winter, the vineyard comes to life again and a new season of growth begins. Bud Burst symbolises the start of a new vintage and is something to be celebrated!

Highlights of the festival include:

  • 2019 Orange Wine Show Tasting & Masterclass
  • The Vino Express (now across two weekends!)
  • Ever-popular Night Markets on Friday, October 25th!

For the first time the Festival is proudly supporting The McGrath Foundation with a dedicated Rosé themed 'Pink Up’ Wine In The Vines on the first Friday of the festival, and for the first time have added a second Wine In The Vines event on the second Friday!
