Toast to the Coast is holding a Festival in the Vines

Geelong’s most iconic local festival Toast to the Coast is fast approaching – next weekend to be exact!!

This year there are more than just award-winning wines on the menu, with unique food creations and alcohol-free delights available for the whole family over the weekend of November 4-5.

Not only is this year looking like the tastiest, but this year winery-goers will be treated to a brand new concept from Austins & Co with their ‘Festival in the Vines’ for those heading to the Moorabool Valley.

This will feature an exciting range of activities to the wine enthusiasts including amazing food, 6Ft6 wines and special frosé and frozen prosecco margaritas! Yep! Frozen prosecco margaritas – what a dream!

“This year we’re hosting ‘Festival in the Vines’ with a stellar line-up of food vendors and entertainment to compliment our wines that will make you want to stay here all day,” says Moorabool Valley winery Austins & Co. managing director Scott Austin.

“The food offering this year is second to none with the guys from The Gypsy’s Lunchbox serving up American-influenced gourmet BBQ style fare. Think pulled meats, sliders, burgers and Southern-fried chicken.

“If that isn’t enough, we’ve also got the team from 196 Below creating customised ice-cream flavours just for you including rosé sorbet and Aperol Spritz gelato. It’s the ultimate ice-cream experience for the whole family with non-alcoholic flavours also available for the kids.”


To further enhance the absolute chilled out experience, there will also be a ‘chill-out’ area with lawn games and seating for when you need to take a break from all the amazing things on offer!

And those with kids need not worry. There will also be a kids zone with cupcake decorating, art easels, sandpit, face painting and balloon-making which you can watch over margarita in hand.

Former X Factor contestant, Nick Tabone will be playing smooth tunes all weekend to keep that buzzing atmosphere alight throughout the vineyard and lawns, while guests can also create memories in the Shutterhub Photobooth.

What an experience. We’re buzzing!
