The famous Toast to the Coast wine festival is returning to Geelong for its 19th year in February.

After the pandemic forced the festival’s cancellation in the previous two years, Wine Geelong is ready to showcase the very best cool-climate wines from the area at Toast to the Coast in 2022.

Highlighting the best wineries, distilleries and breweries in the region, tastings will be abundantly available, with glasses and bottles of each product also available for purchase, ready in time for the festive season – either stock up for yourself or buy a few bottles as gifts for loved ones!

With 19 local Geelong-area wineries, over 80 wines available for tasting, two gin distilleries and a brewery, this showcase is accompanied by delicious snacks including local cheeses, olives and olive oils. All located at the one place, the Toast to the Coast festival is every beer, wine and spirit lover’s dream come true. Choose wines from one of the three regions available – the Moorabool Valley, the Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula.

Smooth jazz and acoustic bands will set the scene and the location is simply to die for. Held at the Pier Geelong on the picturesque waterfront, the festival is held on Sunday 6 February, 2022 and is sure to be a day of delicious food and drink, fun and laughs for all. There are two times available – the morning session, from 11am to 2pm, or the afternoon session, from 3pm to 6pm.

Tickets are $65 per adult, which includes entry, all beer, wine, spirits and cider tastings, live entertainment and Plumm glass to take home.

Wine Geelong will be following the direction of the Chief Health Officer of Victoria in relation to the Covid-19 vaccine requirements for all ticket holders.

Wine Geelong, in partnership with the City of Greater Geelong and Visit Geelong and the Bellarine, is excited to join with sponsors Coulter Roache, Hodges and Plumm for 2022’s Toast to the Coast.
