WAGFG Southern Weekender

19 November 2020 - 22 November 2020

WAGFG Southern Weekender

WA Good Food Guide Southern Weekender | 19-22 November

Over four days this November, the WAGFG Southern Weekender will champion some of the best of Western Australia’s culinary talent, from chefs and growers to winemakers, brewers and distillers, including applauded chefs Seth James (Wills Domain), George Cooper (Tiller Dining), Tony Howell (Cape Lodge) and Brenton Pyke (Market Eating House).

Events will kick off with an official opening party set in the courtyard at Wise Winery on Friday, November 20, a venue that boasts one of the most spectacular ocean vistas in the region. Indulge in Wise gin cocktails, Wise wine and beers by Eagle Bay Brewing Co. complete with canapes, a DJ and bar service until late into the night, in what will be a quintessential way to kick off the Southern Weekender in style.

On the afternoon of Saturday, November 21, an icon of the Margaret River region, Cape Lodge, will launch their newly refurbished Wine Lounge with an afternoon of bubbles and bites on their lakeside deck with a super fresh seafood BBQ served up from Executive Chef, Tony Howell and wines from Peccavi.

That same afternoon at the River Hotel, Margaret River (owned by the same operators as the iconic Local Hotel in South Fremantle), the ROSE ALL DAY event will take over the coolest courtyard the region, with DJ Katie B on the decks and some of the South-West’s best producers pouring tastings all day with incredible canapes circulating the space, designed by the passionate kitchen team using premium WA produce.

That evening, at Wills Domain, the WAGFG Spring Fling will raise a glass to celebrate 20 years of outstanding wine production at the estate. Award-winning chef Seth James will craft a special party menu to include spring lamb, oysters and a Korean style spit-roasted pig. It’s a chance to celebrate with a night of free-flowing drinks, cocktails, spectacular food and dancing under the stars at this iconic estate.

Looking for a long, long lunch? Then head to Sunday Lunch in the Paddock with Chef George Cooper and Pemberton’s Below & Above Wines at Tiller Farm. This true celebration of south-west spring produce will be held on the grass with views across the paddocks.
