Beaufort Street’s very own feast of the culinary and the creative, BeauVine Food and Wine Festival is returning to Birdwood Square this October 21-23.
Established in 2015 as a side-event to the hugely popular Beaufort Street Festival, BeauVine Food and Wine Festival is returning bigger and better for 2016, bringing together some of the best wineries, breweries, cideries, distilleries and eateries from both WA and interstate in the green inner suburban surrounds of Birdwood Square off Beaufort Street. Paired with a selection of art, live music and creative activations and entertainment, BeauVine Food and Wine Festival is a fresh take on the traditional culinary and drinking festival on the city’s doorstep.
A selection of stalls this year includes Voyager Estate, Woodlands Wines, Cape Mentelle, Eagle Bay Brewing Co, Torbreck, Feral Brewery, Arlewood Estate, Hippocampus Distillery, Dormilona, Little Creatures, Swings & Roundabouts, Moët & Chandon and many more.
Serving up a selection of tasty eats will be The Brisbane Hotel, Clarences, The Dominion League, Lucky Chan’s, Mack Daddy’s New York Slice (a personal fav of mine) and Pleased to Meet You.
BeauVine’s live comedy masterclasses will also return, with The Wine Bluffs featuring ‘well cellared’ comedians Damian Callinan & Paul Calleja coming to Perth after performances around the country, as well as Brewed Laughter with self professed bogan and yobbo Chris ‘The Bloke’ Franklin and Uncorked Comedy with dual national comedy competition finalist Xavier Susai.
Hate tokens? So do we! With unlimited drink tastings and a free souvenir tasting glass to take home included in your ticket price, BeauVine Food and Wine Festival allows you to spend more time focused on enjoying the huge range of stalls available.

There is so much to do, even for kids. Don’t think that is just about the wine tastings (although that is definitely a hit!) Last year I went with a girlfriend and her two boys (aged between 3 and 7) and they had a ball, as did we of course! If you missed all the gossip from last years festival- check out my blog post HERE!
