In October there’s a wine and food event with a difference, Bendigo Heritage Uncorked is a moving, yes moving – like walking, feast put on by the winemakers of the Bendigo region.
On Saturday 8 October patrons can leisurely stroll between eight spectacular grand buildings in Central Bendigo, all the while enjoying a selection of the very best wine and food produced in region.
Now in its 21st year this event grows in popularity every year.
It’s a great opportunity to taste a range of spectacular locally produced wines and brilliant gourmet foods produced by some of the region’s gifted chefs with the added bonus of dining in a selection of Bendigo’s stunning Heritage Listed buildings.
For the first time the winemakers of the region are adding Bendigo Heritage After Dark in the majestic Fortuna Villa on the evening of Friday 7 October. A casual wine and food affair with more than 30 wines from 14 winemakers in the 146 year old Fortuna Villa.

Bendigo is an easy 90 minute drive north of Melbourne. Combine a dose of wine and food with art and discovery if you stay the whole weekend. Check out the Toni Maticevski exhibition at the Art Gallery, take a Deborah Gold Mine Tour or discover the burgeoning laneway and coffee culture.
