Our Story

Sebastiano Brini arrived in McLaren Vale from Italy in 1950 with a suitcase, five pounds and a passion for growing grapes. He spoke no English.
Like many European immigrants of this time he worked hard to establish a better life in his new country. He worked as a labourer in local vineyards and by 1953 had saved enough money to purchase a property in Blewitt Springs. At the time, two thirds of the property was used to run dairy cows and the other third had established grapevines (Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro), planted by returned serviceman in the late 1940's as part of a soldier settlement scheme. With the help of his family, the property was progressively planted to all grapevines and the varieties now include Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Merlot, and Chenin Blanc for a total planting of 17 hectares. Planting occurred in the mid to late 1940’s, the 1960’s and late 1990’s. Over the years the vineyard has gained a proud reputation of supplying grapes to some of Australia's finest red wine producers including Penfolds, Rosemount Dárenberg and Maglieri. In 1988 Sebastiano died as a result of a tractor accident and sons Marcello and John continued to manage the vineyard. In the year 2000 John and Marcello established Brini Estate Wines to produce small batches of premium quality wines from the vineyard they grew up on. Visit our Website

And, beyond the kitchen - whether in the veggie patch, the chookshed, or the paddock - he developed a clear understanding of where everything came from, and the importance of that provenance. Every meal was living testimony to relationship between great ingredients and delicious meals.

King Island Dairy

Find King Island Dairy at the Food & Wine Expo!

King Island’s unique microclimate of mineral rich soils, cool annual temperatures, abundant rainfall and consistent salt spray results in incredibly lush pastures. The cows graze on this salty grass, to produce a sweet, unusually rich milk. The milk, sourced from just 10 local farms, is delivered fresh to King Island Dairy, every day. Our dedicated cheesemakers then begin the age-old practice of cheese making, with many of our cheeses being carefully turned and wrapped by hand. The cheese then makes the boat journey across Bass Strait to the mainland. On the odd occasion, the seas are too rough and the cheese can’t actually leave the island. It takes a whole community to produce King Island Dairy cheese – farmers, milk truck drivers, cheese makers, wrappers and packers, all working together to ensure our award-winning products are enjoyed by cheese lovers around Australia. All of our cheeses are made on King Island from 100% King Island milk, sourced from a handful of local farms and delivered fresh daily to our dairy. Visit our Website or Facebook

Mount Alexander Winery

See Mount Alexander at the Food & Wine Expo!

Mount Alexander Winery is operated by the Blamires family on the north eastern slopes of Mount Alexander in Central Victoria. The vineyard is planted in the sandy granite soils of Sutton Grange which are famed for producing high quality Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The property and vineyard are dissected by Axe Creek. All grape growing and winemaking practices are designed to maximise quality and allow the strong fruit characteristics to be reflected in the wine. The fruit is hand pruned to target yields of less than 2 tonnes per acre. The fruit is hand picked and delivered directly to the winery for processing where fermentation vats are hand plunged and the marc is basket pressed to maximise the intensity and varietal characteristics of the fruit. Quality oak (all French) is used to store the wine for 12 months before the wine is bottled on site using the winery’s own automatic bottling line. Stelvin closures are used for all wines to ensure the wine quality will be maintained until the day it is opened and enjoyed.

A world of cheese delivered to your door by The Smelly Cheese Shop. Cheese Club Selections direct from artisan cheesemakers to you. Cheese Master Classes include cheese appreciation; champagne, wine or beer matching; exploring local cheese, discovering it by different styles or country of origin.


A backpacking holiday through France during the early 90's was the inspiration for the creation of The Smelly Cheese Shop at Adelaide Central Market. Local chefs and cheese lovers soon discovered that this little gem was showcasing products that South Australians had not seen before. The word spread and demand grew for this carefully selected range of specialty cheese. Ongoing visits to cheese makers from all over Australia and the world, allows us to select the best on offer. Twenty years on, we are still discovering exciting new cheeses to deliver to you.

The Smelly Cheese Shop Online was created as a result of interstate visitors to our store at Adelaide Central Market, asking how they could get our cheese after they returned home. So in 2007 we began delivering cheese to your door.

The American Hotdog

🌭 Find The American Hot Dog at The Food & Wine Expo!

The American Hotdog Company is a family run business which started on the Sunshine Coast. Authentic American hotdogs 🌭 available for markets, events and festivals! Queensland, Australia!

Drew’s love affair with hotdogs began as a child in America. Growing up in Minnesota and taking family vacations around the country exposed him to traditional hotdogs throughout the US. It also helped that his favourite uncle had a traditional hotdog cart on the streets of New York City!! The dogs that resonated closely with him due to their amazing flavours were The Coney Island, The New Yorker, The Chicago and The L.A dog.

On moving to Australia in 2011 Drew wanted to share these traditional flavours with the country he now calls home.

The distinctive mobile food truck is a modern take on the traditional cart that you’d find on the footpaths of New York City. Boasting a superior interpretation of the universally loved roadside snack, the wholesome traditional ingredients you’ll find here are second to none. Choose from a selection of flavours with homemade sauces and packaged up in a scrumptious bun with fresh ingredients sourced from local farmers.

We hope you share the love for dogs as much as we do.

Warrumbungle Wines

Find Warrumbungle Wines at the Food & Wine Expo!

GOLD COAST - Booth #81

The Warrumbungle Mountains are the soaring, jagged remnants of a 13 million year old volcanic hotspot that protrude quite incongruously from the plains in northern NSW. Upon one of the higher peaks was built an astronomical telescope that even today ranks as one of the world's largest, earning the neighbouring town of Coonabarabran the title 'Astronomy Capital of Australia'. It was initially a combination of these factors that lead us to consider Coonabarabran as an intriguing place to plant a vineyard. Almost ten years on from our establishment in 1998, and that initial hunch now seems inspired. The deep volcanic soils, high altitude, low pollution, generous sunshine, and reliable rainfall have enabled us to make such balanced and deeply complex wines that we now wonder why we are not surrounded by vineyards.
