In heaven at the Canberra Food and Wine Expo

On the 1st of February, Canberra hosted the Food and Wine Expo at the National Convention Centre. I’m not joking when I say that I was in heaven. I sampled and drank as much my stomach would allow in the 3 hours that I was there. The gourmet exhibitors included businesses in food, wine, homewares and kitchenware.

But before I even got inside, I attended a Southern Highlands Food & Wine class in the Appreciation Area. Think of it as pre-drinks before a party. The Moscato was my personal favourite.

After purchasing a glass with an attached holder to place around your neck; for the sole purpose of being able to hold both your drink and food in your hand at once; we headed inside. The expo filled up the entirety of the centre and was so overwhelmingly large, it was difficult to choose where to start. Do I quench my thirst or do I feed my growling stomach was the question.

My standouts were: The Smelly Cheese Shop, Mount Alexander Winery, Cello, KnockLofty, Doterra Essential Oils, Benchmark Beverages, Italian Wine Connection and Blue Nun.

Whether you’re a foodie or a wine connoisseur, there is something for everyone!
