VIC Cider & Pork Festival
Australia Day Long Weekend
Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th January 2016
Rochford Wines - Yarra Valley


Welcome to the first Victorian Cider & Pork Festival, held amongst the trees at the Rochford

Wines estate in the Yarra Valley. This two-day festival showcases the best ciders from Victoria and around the country and the tastiest pork dishes from Melbourne’s leading chefs.

Come along on the Australia Day weekend - 23rd & 24th January - and make the most of live entertainment, cider tastings, cider and pork masterclasses, alongside the best ciders from over 15 local, interstate and international breweries and crowd favourite pork dishes from Melbounre's pork loving restaurants and food trucks.

We showcase the best of what the humble pig has to offer. Get stuck into pulled pork rolls, pork belly, crackling, bacon and every pork dish you could imagine from Melbourne’s best chefs.

We’ve brought together the best cider producers from Victoria, interstate and overseas under one roof at Rochford Wines. Sample the best and pick your favourite, alongside cider’s best friend - pork.
