The 2021 Good Food & Wine Show is rounding up Australia’s finest wine and cheese for an unstoppable weekend in Brisbane from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th October. This year’s show is undoubtedly set to be the tastiest yet, with the show celebrating its 21st birthday.

Brisbanites will be able to sip and taste their way through over 600 wines and 60 different kinds of cheese from Aussie producers and watch the likes of Matt Moran, Silvia Colloca, Miguel Maestre and Matt Golinski cook up a storm on the live stage. This year, for the first time, some of Brisbane’s best dining institutions will be showcasing their most-loved dishes at the Eat Local pop-up (venues to come).

Make your way around the venue with your iconic wine glass and cheese plate, and don’t miss the never-before-seen spirit fleet of buses, where you can sip your way on board the double-decker Glenfiddich Whisky bus, Hendricks Cucumber Airstream and the Monkey Shoulder Shaker and watch all the action unfold from above.

Tickets are on sale from Thursday, 12 August and start from $30.  Citi returns as presenting partner of the Good Food & Wine Show for the 9th year running, and once again is offering Citi customers best in market ticket offers including 2-4-1 General Admission or VIP tickets, plus exclusive customer benefits including priority queuing, a free wine tasting glass and reserved seating at the RIEDEL Drinks Lab.
