Combining our two true loves of wine and food, Pinot Palooza is coming back to Sydney in October for their fifth consecutive year of quaffing and scoffing.
Pinot Palooza is Australia’s largest annual Pinot Noir festival and this year it’s back at Carriageworks—Sydney’s hottest spot for contemporary food markets and festivals. Pinot Palooza will feature wine from over 100 of Australia and New Zealand’s hottest wineries and food from some of Australia’s fave chefs meaning it’s going to be one epic day of eating and drinking.
Since the conception of Pinot Palooza in 2011, over 200 wineries have been involved and joining the ranks this year are Ata Rangi, Kooyong Est, Craggy Range and Giant steps, to name just a glass full. Returning for their fifth year are old faithfuls Curly Flat, Dalrymple and Josef Chromy, and if you need a break from the vino, Young Henrys will also be on hand with some well-earned coldies.
The fun doesn’t stop over at the bar because the food offerings are pretty rockin’ too. Supplying the sustenance to taste wines all day, you’ll be able to feast on dishes from Bodega, Belles Hot Chicken and Yarra Valley Dairy to name just a few.
This year, you can upgrade to a full VIP experience (complete with smug lanyard and VIP card) that’ll see you enjoying early entry, a food voucher, specially selected Burgundy Bar tasting and some quality one-on-one time with our city’s best sommeliers.
All tickets include a Plumm Vintage Red wine glass as well as all tastings—no pesky drink tokens necessary here!
