The 2013 NSW Wine Festival is a celebration of the State’s 14 wine regions and fine local produce. The Festival began on February 25 with the launch of Sydney Cellar Door and continues with a range of exciting events through to the end of March.
One of the best ways to experience NSW wine is by joining some of the state’s most interesting winemakers over dinner – at hated Sydney restaurants or at one-off gatherings across regional NSW. Never been to Tumbarumba? Excited about Canberra wines? Want to explore the Bathurst story? Journey through the wine regions of NSW one dining table at a time.
For a more casual encounter, why not explore Sydney’s bar scene and taste your way around NSW as you go. From classic venues to the latest hot spots, $15 buys you a glass of wine with a matching bar snack. Or, for $25, get a series of tasting pours, plus matched snack, of course.
Wine lovers with a sweet tooth can experience indulgent desserts paired with a NSW dessert wine at a range of destinations throughout Sydney and regional NSW. Dessert was never more delightful than when paired with a NSW dessert wine, so why not visit one of the many participating eateries for a special treat.
Fancy a meal by a one of Sydney’s best chefs? For Dine with NSW Wine, top Sydney chefs have created a carefully chosen main course (or more) paired with some of the State’s finest wines. Participating restaurants include ARIA Sydney, Pilu at Freshwater, Four in Hand, and Otto Ristorante, to name a few.
On Saturday 2 Sydney Morning Herald Growers' Market will get into the spirit of the NSW Wine Festival. Located by Sydney Harbour at the picturesque Pyrmont Bay Park, all the usual stalls will be back, plus a few special NSW wine focussed stalls.
