Gather your crew and get ready to slurp and sip your way through the afternoon this weekend.
Visting your favourite winemakers typically involves hitting the road for a long drive out to rural vineyards and cellar doors. While we love a weekend away, sometimes it’s tempting to stay local and visit the city’s stellar array of neighbourhood wine bars instead. But at this inner-city wine destination, you can enjoy the best of both worlds without leaving the city.
Tucked away in the heart of the eastern suburbs is Urban Winery Sydney, a full functioning open winery, cellar door, wine bar and event space at The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park. Since relocating in early 2018, the winery has solidified its place as a one-of-a-kind multipurpose space celebrating the best winemakers and producers across New South Wales. Plus, the crew even produce their own wines on-site in Sydney under the label A.Retief Wines. Founded by winemaker Alex Retief in 2008, the label sources grapes from cool-climate regions of NSW including Tumbarumba, The Hilltops and the family’s biodynamic vineyard in Gundagai to create handcrafted drops exploring different blends and varietals.
This summer, the Urban Winery Sydney crew is putting on an event celebrating Sydney’s favourite pink drink: rosé. On Sunday, December 1st, the team is bringing back their oh-so-popular for a second year with the Unlimited Oyster and Bottomless Rosé Day 2019. Head to the beautiful Heritage Lawn at the Urban Winery precinct to enjoy an afternoon in the sun.
From 1pm to 4pm guests will be treated to bottomless glasses of A.Retief Rosé along with unlimited trays of fresh oysters to complete the laid-back picnic experience. Get your mates together and sit back with a glass of chilled rosé in hand, with free live music setting the mood for a perfect summer afternoon.
The Urban Winery Sydney’s Unlimited Oyster & Bottomless Rosé Day 2019 will be taking place on Sunday, December 1st from 1pm to 4pm. Tickets ($65 per person) can be purchased here.
