Sydney Just Scored An Entire Island Dedicated To Wine

By Ange Law - 25 Jul 2017


Wine Island is returning to its rightful place—Sydney Harbour—for another year and we are more than a little bit excited. Now before you try and buy tickets (they haven't gone on sale yet), here are all of the juicy, wine-filled details. 

If last year's event is anything to go by, there’ll be row upon row of delicious drops hailing from every corner of Australia and New Zealand, and you’ll obviously be making a few trips down King Valley Prosecco Road (pleeeease let this guy make a come back for 2017). In fact—last year, the wine started before you even stepped onto the island because they handed you a glass as soon as you jumped on the ferry #thedream.

Wine isn’t all that you’re in for though, with Dessert Island delivering all of the sweet goods, a host of cheese and wine matching workshops, and even a silent disco drop (it’s as fun as it sounds). In case you can't tell, we think last year was perfection and don't even mind if it's exactly the same deal this year.

We’re tempted to buy a bottle of rosé in celebration—it’s never too early for a wine, right? To stay in the loop on this year's festival, head here
