Sip, sip, hooray!

Sydney’s iconic Pirrama Park in Pyrmont is set to be adorned with effervescence as Sparkling Sydney returns on Sunday, November 26, 2023. This unique sparkling wine festival promises a day of gastronomic delights, featuring an extensive selection of both local and international sparkling wines set along our beloved harbour.

The heart of Sparkling Sydney lies in its diverse array of sparkling wines, offering a tasting journey through Blanc de Blanc, Petit Verdot, Sparkling Malbec, Prosecco, and more. With over 60 sparkling wines to explore, attendees will have the opportunity to savour the craftsmanship of renowned winemakers, including Petersons Wines, Savannah Estate, Peterson House, and an array of other distinguished names.

For those seeking a departure from sparkling, the Craft Spirits section beckons, featuring El Jimador Tequila and Gin Mare activation bars. Dive into tantalising tastings and Spring-inspired cocktails, including options from local small-batch distillers like Finders Distillery and Small Mouth Vodka. Even non-alcoholic delights are on offer, such as refreshing pineapple Pickled Bear Seltzer.
