The meals will be prepared by executive chef Shane Bailey, to be specifically matched to the wines.

Restaurant proprietor Jim Berardo said the third annual event was a huge coup for the Noosa region.

"All these guys are in Australia for the New Zealand in a Glass event, which only goes to capital cities," he said.

"Noosa is the only regional destination these wine makers come to. It's a very big privilege.

"It's always a popular event, very packed. It's always a beautiful night."

The five-course dinner with matching wines costs $115, inclusive.

A few tickets are still available.
