Vino Paradiso: International Wine and Food Festival is a three-day celebration showcasing some of the world’s best wine, food, craft beer, cider and spirits. Set in the magnificent Australian Technology Park exhibition hall, Vino Paradiso stuns with live art and music, grape crushing, master classes and wine sampling. And seeing as we are 2 Hungry Guys, we will be focusing on the amazing array of delicious food stalls on offer.
