Dragoncello Five Awesome Things in Sydney

Sydney, you never seem to let us down. A tonne of restaurants are getting on the food and wine tasting train (the most delicious train of them all), so if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of experiencing this, make sure you take advantage of the events on this week! We’ve got a vegetarian dinner (featuring wines), a wine dinner (featuring, you guessed it, wines), whisky dinners (not featuring wines) and something else that’s a little bit different.

A Vegetarian Experience at Dragoncello 

Roy McVeigh, head chef at Dragoncello is putting on a very special vegetarian event not to be missed!

And of course, these meals will be matched with premium wines. Head online to book a spot now!
