The Good Food & Wine Show presented by Citi is back bigger than ever for 2017 with brand new features, experiences, masterclasses and hundreds of first-time exhibitors showcasing products never seen before.
The celebrity chef line-up in Melbourne is a major drawcard, with appearances from Manu Feildel, Miguel Maestre, Matt Moran, Matt Wilkinson, Matt Stone, Marion Grasby and more!
There is so much to see and do including the Taittinger Lounge and Oyster Bar, Riedel Drinks Lab, and masterclasses covering everything from chocolate to the smelliest of cheeses.
Here’s a sneak peak of some of our favourite local Melbourne exhibitors at the Good Food & Wine Show this year.
Your favourite beer, wine and spirits delivered to your door in under 60 minutes. Founded by two Melbourne based liquor industry brothers who have changed the bottle shop concept all together letting people order and receive deliveries of their liquor of choice via an app. They deliver alcohol on demand across Melbourne, cold and ready to drink, hurrah!

2. Pod & Parcel
For lovers of coffee, Pod & Parcel supply local artisan roasted coffee from the likes of Padre, Common Ground and Streat in pod form that fit into your Nespresso machine, and all the materials are 100% biodegradable and compostable. With 36% of Australians drinking more than 5 cups of coffee a day and 30 billion aluminium Nespresso pods currently in circulation doing terrible things for our environment, the Melbourne founders of Pod & Parcel saw an opportunity to make our favourite local roasters even more convenient and change the coffee pod game.

3. Only Mine
Exquisite hand made chocolates that taste as good as they look! Made by hand in a home kitchen in South East Melbourne, flavours include Chai Milk Chocolate, French Vanilla and Liquorice, and Passionfruit Dark Chocolate. Little bite size morsels of magic. Be inspired via @onlyminechocolates
4. Helen & Joey Estate
Taste and enjoy a selection of wines including the Yarra Valley vineyard’s two signature Cabernet Sauvignon varieties; the Inara which is an early bottled and pure expression of Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the premium Alena Cabernet Sauvignon which has matured for a significantly longer period in French oak barrels.
Helen & Joey Senior Winemaker Meg Brodtmann is the first Australian born woman to qualify as a Master of Wine and said she is proud of the wines produced at Helen & Joey Estate: “We have belief in the character of the Helen & Joey vineyard and the desire to showcase the characteristics expressed in our wines to Melbourne’s tastemakers is why we have chosen to be a part of the Good Food and Wine Show this year.” See more at @Helenandjoeyestate
5. The Spice Maze
After moving to Australia 14 years ago, founder Shishanee missed her mother’s home cooking from Sri Lanka and after realising how hard it was to find cheap, chemical free and high quality spices she decided to import them directly from the Sri Lankan farmers, supporting the local farmers and offering Aussies the best quality spices at the same time, yum! @thespicemaze
