CELBRATING 18 years of great produce, fine wine and awesome ales, the Rotary Wine Beer & Food Enjoyment is on Saturday, May 20.

Wine buffs haven't been forgotten with representatives from leading wineries including Temple Bruer Wines, William Hunt Wines, Taylor Made Wines, La La Land Wines, Tamberline Organic Wines and Deakin Estate Sparkling Wines.

A silent auction is being held on the day with a selection of items up for bid. It all happens from 2.30pm to 6pm at Novotel Pacific Bay Resort on Saturday, May 20. Tickets $25pp from Thrifty Car Rental 66528622 or BYO Cellars 66525455.
