An annual Great Southern highlight, the Albany Wine & Food Festival will be serving up a variety of over 100 wines from across the Great Southern region. Held on April 4 2020, this will be your chance to sip, taste and savour them all in one place at Eyre Park.
Pick a glass of your favourite on the day to match with the excellent food served by the local foodies or grab a bottle and bring the flavour back home with you.
