The Noosa Woods will be transformed into a wine and produce village for this year’s Noosa Food and Wine Festival from 19 – 21 May. The woods will become a short-stay home to more than 30 wineries ready for festival attendees to taste some of the best wines, while some of the region’s best producers, cheese makers and sauministi will make sure no one goes hungry.

The Festival will host a great selection of bars offering a variety of beverages. At the heart of The Woods will be the vineyard themed Dal Zotto Prosecco Bar, featuring Prosecco cocktails and Cicchetti dishes created by Noosa Boathouse. Other bars featured this year include Sticks Wine and Cheese Bar, Asahi Super Dry Oyster Bar, Sunset Lounge presented by Miss Moneypenny’s and the Cider Lab Harvest Bar.

The Woods will also welcome an incredible music takeover.

Billed as ‘FOR THOSE WHO KNOW’, festival-goers can expect to see performances from Hugo Gruzman, Jimmy 2 Sox, Surahn, Wealth, Greg Sara and Tim Sullivan. Australian dance music royalty will be teaming up for the weekend, with artists whose credits include Flight Facilities, Empire Of The Sun and The Swiss. Spread over the course of three magical nights, this troupe of DJs, producers, musicians and vocalists will give the Festival’s after dark activities some serious disco edge.

Hilary McNevin is set to host the festival chefs on the cooking stage as they share their tricks of the trade. The lineup includes Sat Bains, Geoff Lindsay, Adam D’yslva, Alessandro Pavoni, Frank Camorra, Giovanni Puli, Matt Golinksi, Monty Kuludrovic, Luke Mangan, Massimo Mele, Jake Nicholson, Ben Williamson, Ben O’Donoghue, Ian Curley and Jo Barrett.
