The Geelong Food and Wine Show is a spin off from the increasingly popular Melbourne Food and Wine Festival which goes from strength to strength each year. Now that Geelong has its own festival it will be another wonderful way to put some of the best of what the Bellarine, Surfcoast and Great Ocean Road and Western District has to offer all in one place for all to experience and enjoy.
