How To Sample
South Burnett Wines
Sampling the output of our wineries at the Festival is
All the region's top wineries will be spread across the grounds in our Gourmet Food
(you simply can't miss them!)
You can meet the winemakers in a relaxed atmosphere, discuss the
wines with them, try them and if you want to, buy your
favourites directly over the counter at rock-bottom prices.
There's absolutely no pressure and you can do it all in a fun,
friendly atmosphere with lots of other people who love
wine just as much as you do!
If you prefer, you can also obtain beer and low to mid-strength mixers
on the grounds, or craft beer and ciders in the Festival's
Craft Beer Garden.
Tea, coffee, soft drinks, fresh fruit
juices and water will be available in the food village too.
A Note About
When you buy a bottle of wine, you'll be given plastic glasses to
drink it with.
And if you intend to drink your bottle at the Festival - probably with friends,
as most peple do - you should always use the glasses
Drinking directly from a wine bottle is considered very poor etiquette
and our security guards will remove you from the Festival grounds
if you do this.
Wine & Food In The Park not only promotes responsible alcohol
consumption, but good manners too.
It's what everyone wants and expects from a family-safe Festival, isn't it?
So please help us keep the great WAFITP festival we all love safe and secure
by setting a good example and using the wine glasses provided.
Queensland's Top Wineries
The South Burnett Wine & Food in The Park Festival is a showcase
for the South Burnett's wineries. In 2001 we were declared one of
Queensland's official wine regions - and when you try our wines we're
sure you'll soon see why!
In 2003 we also became Queensland's largest grape crush region
the Granite Belt's harvest and more than every
other Queensland wine region combined! That year we also waltzed away with
50% of the gold medals
at the Queensland Wine Awards plus a swag of
silvers and bronzes - more medals per capita than anyone else too.
This year all the South Burnett's best winemakers will be at the
Festival. You can sample some of the earliest releases of their 2019 vintages.
Or try some of the white, red and sparkling wines that won state,
national and international awards over the last year.
The wineries exhibiting at the 2019 Festival are:
