Puppies & Pinot, the Festival we Didn’t Know we Needed

In life, there are some perfect combinations – gin and tonic, cheese and vegemite, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds… But the one partnership we didn’t know we needed until now, and will soon wonder how we ever did without, is puppies and wine – specifically pinot.

Hosted by Vinomofo and Welcome to Thornbury, the Puppies & Pinot Festival in Melbourne this May 4th (May the Fourth be with you) will bring together two favourites for a day of good food, delicious wines and doggo fun! If you don’t own a dog, find someone who does.

Held at the street food hotspot Welcome To Thornbury, the all ages festival will feature Welcome To Thornbury’s staple food trucks, free Vinomofo wine tastings, Melbourne’s favourite puppy stalls and Vinomofo’s ingenius Winescream machine – a machine that makes wine ice cream and sorbet.

Man’s best friend will be treated to dog-friendly pinot and snacks from The Canine Wellness Kitchen, and even puppy wading pools to help your four-legged friend live its best life.
