Good Food & Wine Show: Brisbane - WIN TICKETS

It's back! And it's the last one for the year!


The Good Food & Wine Show has been travelling around Australia, and is now ending with the Brisbane show.

George Calombaris is one of many faces at the event:



Read on as Josie's Juice is set to give readers the chance to win one of two double passes for the Brisbane show, in from October 30 to November 1.



Sophie Radonic, Senior Marketing Manager, says it is great to have such a high-profile chef and personality as part of the show.

"Ainsley is immensely popular and we look forward to him coming to Australia to not only help us promote the shows via his debut at the Melbourne event but also to do some demonstrations in new and novel ways."

Ms Radonic said this year's Good Food & Wine Show program has been designed to get people thinking about how and why they use certain ingredients, not just the things they stock their pantry with.

"Showcasing the diversity of the food and wine culture in Australia - from family-run businesses to established artisan companies, our best local and interstate chefs and restaurateurs, and mouth-watering national and international street food, there's no doubt that anyone coming through the doors this year will be set for some fun. 

"What's more, we are excited to announce that this year's program will not only be about giving visitors onsite experiences as we'll be taking elements of the program to the streets of each state to ensure no one misses out!"

Also joining the Good Food & Wine Show for another year as the show's primary sponsor is Citi. Citi Australia’s Managing Director, Customer Franchise, Linda Duncombe, said the bank is delighted to continue its partnership with the Good Food & Wine Show, as part of Citi’s commitment to the local food and wine industry.

"The Good Food & Wine Show continues to inspire Australians to celebrate good cuisine and this partnership is an important part of Citi’s support of the food and wine sector in Australia. Our partnership with food and wine events around Australia aligns with our popular Citibank Dining Program, which encourages our customers to dine out at hundreds of restaurants around the country."

With a particular focus on on-trend foods and beverages, and never-before-seen food experiences, this year’s shows will also feature a host of crowd favourites along with a number of new master classes*.
