In the early 70’s two families migrated to the Gold Coast from Sydney, the Scott’s and West’s. Having been members of a Sydney Wine and Food Society, it was natural for them to form one on the Gold Coast. Thus Gold Coast Wine and Food Society came into being in 1972. The new Society, became part of the newly formed Australian Federation, met for dinner on a monthly basis. Leila Scott had considerable wine knowledge and could never be caught out during blind tastings. Wonder how she would fare today with the variety available.

During the eighties Leila Scott became the Society’s first life member. Daphne Litfin’s twenty years contribution to the Society was also recognised with Life membership. Recently the service of George Litfin, Leonie McMahon, Gael and Philip Maude were recognised with life memberships.

Over the years the Presidents and committees have continued the goal of appreciation and discovery of wine and food in its many forms. Notable events in past years were the wine discovery trips to the many Queensland and NSW regions, hosting of the Victor Gibson Weekend in 2007. and visit by FWFSA President, Joanna More to celebrate the Society' 45 anniversary

As the Gold Coast is Australia's premier holiday destination. Members of a Australian Wine and Food Society you and your partner are most welcome to contact us and/or attend a function.
