Savouring the Flavours of 2023: South Coast Food and Wine Festival


If you’re a food and wine enthusiast like me, there’s no better way to spend a weekend than at a festival that celebrates the finer things in life. The 2023 South Coast Food and Wine Festival, held at the stunning Huskisson on 14 October 2023, was an absolute treat for the senses.

The festival grounds were bustling with excitement, with a lively atmosphere that promised a delightful day ahead. As I stepped onto the premises, the aroma of delicious dishes wafted through the air, and the clinking of wine glasses created a symphony of merriment.

One of the standout features of this year’s festival was the remarkable variety of culinary delights on offer. From gourmet food trucks serving up mouthwatering street food to Michelin-star chefs crafting exquisite dishes, there was something for every palate. I couldn’t resist indulging in an array of delectable treats, from freshly shucked oysters to sumptuous cheese platters that paired perfectly with the fine wines on offer.

The South Coast Food and Wine Festival also shone a spotlight on local producers and artisans. The stalls were filled with handcrafted goods, from artisanal cheeses to homemade preserves, and it was heartening to see the passion and dedication of these local entrepreneurs.

Of course, the wine was a star of the show. Local wineries and vineyards showcased their best vintages, allowing festival-goers to sample a wide range of varietals. I discovered new favorites and had the chance to chat with winemakers, who shared their expertise and love for their craft.

As the sun set over the picturesque location, live music provided the perfect backdrop for sipping wine, savouring delicious food, and enjoying the company of friends and fellow festival-goers. The festival had a fantastic lineup of musicians, adding to the overall festive atmosphere.

One of the most exciting aspects of this year’s South Coast Food and Wine Festival was the sense of community. It was evident that this event brings people together to celebrate not only the culinary arts but also the South Coast’s unique charm and character.

As I reflect on this incredible day, I can’t help but look forward to next year’s festival with great anticipation. I’m already making a mental checklist of the foods and wines I want to try, the stalls I want to visit, and the music acts I can’t wait to see. I’m excited to see how the festival will evolve and what new surprises it will bring in 2024.

In conclusion, the 2023 South Coast Food and Wine Festival was a memorable experience that left my taste buds tingling and my heart full of joy. It’s an event that should be on every food and wine lover’s calendar. So, mark your calendars, prepare your taste buds, and get ready for an unforgettable experience next year. Until then, let’s raise a glass to the wonderful memories and the anticipation of what’s to come in 2024!
