In for the win...

Man, do we have a few treats for you leading up to the coolest little wine festival in the country.

Thanks to a whole heap of our generous local mates, we've got some giveaways that are
nothing short of rad.

Check 'em out below...




There’s a reason QANTAS are our favourite peeps to fly with. No matter which seat or ticket you've purchased with them, everyone gets a full plate of food and a full glass of their favourite bevy when they're in the air
(which is very important for folk like us who love our chow).

On the day of the festival, we're giving one of you very snap-happy festival attendees a flight for two across the ditch to your choice of either Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, so you can experience QANTAS' high-flying hospitality services.

Here's all you've got to do to be into win...

1. Snap a photo of your favourite wine and food match during the day of the festival

2. Upload it to Instagram and tag @ncwineandfood and @qantas

3. Hashtag #ncwineandfood and #qantas

Winner announced via our Facebook page on Monday 12 March.
