April is almost over and we’re giddy with excitement about the month of May because our absolute fave food and wine festival (aka Taste Orange) returns to Sydney!
In celebration of Aussie Wine Month, Brand Orange and Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel are taking over Robertson Park with a lineup like no other. From 11am on Sunday May 7th you’ll be able to wrap your laughing gear around some of the finest wine to come out of Orange (one of Australia’s most prominent cool climate wine regions, duh!). Rowlee Wines, Philip Shaw Wines, Ross Hill Wines, Angullong Wines and Stockmans Ridge Wines are among some of the masterminds who will be attending the festival, along with Heifer Station Wines, Slow Wine Co, Logan Wines and Gilbert Family Wines. Small Acres Cyder/Badlands Brewery, Highland Heritage and Cargo Road Wines our are top picks!
Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel will be providing the eats and you’ll have plenty of delicious food to soak up the day of drinking. Don't go home without trying The Ruben (aka smoked brisket, sauerkraut and slaw), Paella and cheese picnic boxes. Just sayin'.
Entry to the festival is free but we know you’re going to want to enjoy a drop (or three), so grab a tasting ticket here (includes 10 tasting tokens and wine glass) and avoid those pesky queues.
Hot tip: if you’re a true wine enthusiast (guilty) we strongly suggest you get amongst the wine master classes at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. Just sayin. Get all the deets here.
