You will be bubbling with excitement for the return of Sparkling Sydney Festival.
Champagne. Pet Nat. Prosecco. Bubbles. Whatever drop you prefer, sparkling wine is undeniably a celebratory drink. After the success of the inaugural Sparkling Sydney Festival in 2019, this day-long celebration of all things effervescent returns this May. From 11am to 5pm on Sunday, May 24th, Sparkling Sydney takes over Pyrmont’s Pirrama Park for a day of flowing bubbles.
Boasting over sixty sparkling wines from both local and international wineries, sip your way through some of the world’s greatest wine regions. This celebration will broaden your sparkling wine knowledge, varieties of sparkling on offer including Cuvee, Malbec, Moscato, Prosecco and plenty more! This stellar line-up of wine producers includes the likes of Brave New World Wine (pouring a range of low alcohol wine spritzers), Carboot Wines, Drayton’s Family Wines, Iron Gate Estate, Printhie Wines (winner of the Best Sparkling Trophy at the NSW Wine Awards 2018) plus Savannah Estate, Tulloch Wines and so much 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 $26 (which includes a branded festival glass and four tasting tickets). If you rather your dose of bubbles from beer, then Australian craft brewery favourites Frenchies Brewery and Six String Brewing Company will be on hand to satiate your needs with sparkling ales and craft beers.
But this isn’t a festival just about all things sparkling. In fact, you’ll find an impressive line-up of gourmet food stalls throughout the festival, including Sydney’s modern Asian eatery Jimmy Liks (make sure to nab a serve of barbecued chicken or smoked trout) along with French eats from Le Coq Rotisserie, freshly shucked oysters from Ralston Oysters Bar plus Italian bites from Lucio’s Pizzeria and The Gnocchi Way. In the mood for a meat-free meal? Make sure to swing by Vege For Love to sample Asian vegetarian eats too.
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.
