You will be bubbling with excitement for the new Sparkling Sydney Festival.
Sydney is getting a new festival this month, and it is sparkling! Kicking off on Sunday 19th May at the glistening Pirrama Park, Sparkling Sydney promises a day of wines, eats and plenty of good vibes.
Boasting over sixty sparkling wines from both local and International wineries, sip your way through some of Australia’s greatest wine regions. Additionally you can expect a broad selection of international guests presented by XWineandZ, Made in Italy, Direct Wine Cellars and EuroConcepts.
This celebration will broaden your sparkling wine knowledge, varieties of sparkling on offer including Cuvee, Malbec, Moscato, Prosecco and plenty more! The good news is that Sparkling Sydney is a free event, however if you are feeling lavish, wine tasting packages are available, starting at $20.
Head to the Bellini Cipriani Bar and taste your way through the much-loved Prosecco and peach cocktail, all the way from its birth place, Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy. From here you can wander over to a dedicated sparkling rose and oyster bar. Here you’ll find ‘The Ridge North Lilydale’, Tasmania’s Best Small Vineyard of the year 2017, matched with freshly shucked oysters.
Alternatively pop over to the Garden Bar to experience the collaboration between Fever-Tree and Adelaide Hills Distillery. Be sure to check out the highly commended Green Ant Gin.
The legends from Jimmy Liks will be filling bellies with their signature barbecued chicken, smoked trout and rice noodle salad. Chef Sulo Kirbancioglu of Safran presents their highly sought-after hummus, with a variety of toppings. Home-made dumplings are also on offer from the locals at Blue Eye Dragon. For the self-professed plant eaters, Yulli’s Alexandria will be providing plenty of vegan options.
To top it all off there will be plenty of great produce to take home from this experience, a variety of stalls offering charcuterie, cheeses, preserves, boutique sauces, seasonings, honeys and more.
