As far as we’re concerned, wine, food and air are all that’s needed to live a good life. Okay, maybe water too if we’re being real. And this year, you will be living life exceptionally well if you get your butt along to these two epic wine and food events that are popping up in our beautiful city.
From warming up on a winter's eve with a vino in hand to breathing in the fresh spring air and shaking off your winter woes in Subiaco, there are plenty of wines to taste, eats to devour and bottles to buy to keep your wine cellar (aka the cupboard above the fridge) well stocked into 2019.
iCals and credit cards at the ready!
#1 Chase Away The Winter Blues At City Wine
Urban Orchard, Perth Cultural Centre, 8 & 9 June
A glass of wine can fix just about anything, especially the winter blues, which is why we’ve locked away June 8 and 9 in our iCals to kick the rainy season off on the right foot at City Wine. The Urban Orchard will transform into an undercover wine tasting wonderland as you try, buy and collect boutique vino for your collection from the best WA winemakers. Feast on pizza goodness and grazing platters from Two Queens Woodfired Street Food, That Food Truck’s mac 'n' cheese and bacon spring rolls and Tapas Man's Spanish caramelised onion and three cheese croquettas as you kick back in the Garden Courtyard or Skyline Terrace with your besties and bop your head to the live music from Hart Trio and The Prefix. Winter hibernation can commence post 9 June as far as we are concerned. Book here!
#2 Unwind With Wine And Food This Spring
Market Square Park, Subiaco, 27 & 28 October
If tasting from more than 40 wineries in one day is on your bucket list, UnWined Subiaco is the event for you! The event will showcase the best of the best drops from local wine producers which can all be enjoyed from your classy Plumm souvenir wine glass or stored safely in your dedicated wine locker until it’s time to catch an Uber home (safety first, people). Grab a picnic blanket and chill out on the lawn all afternoon, or if you prefer the finer things in life, purchase a ticket to the Club Lounge which will get you access to a private bar, gourmet BBQ and a VIP restroom (ooh la la). There’ll be grape fun happening in the wine theatre, plus live music and street-style food from the likes of Gyoza Joint, The Turkish Saj, Le Crepe de Paris, Tapas Man, The Dirty Swine and Saigon Eats to nosh on all day long. What on Earth are you waiting for? Book here!
