Blend vino from Hunter Valley with the sights and smells of the sea
The wines of the Hunter region are coming down to sunny-side Balmoral on Sunday October 8 for the Uncorked wine-tasting festival. For $31, you can purchase a Riedel wine glass and four tasting tickets online so you can wander around all the stalls (packed with wine and gourmet, local eats) and see what takes your fancy. There’ll be souvenir wine glasses available on the day for $10, Riedel glasses for $15 and tasting tickets for $4 each. Things will kick off at 11am and wind down for a 5pm finish, with the last tasting ticket selling at 4.30pm and the last wine poured at 4.45pm. To avoid traffic (and being designated driver), hop on the free shuttle bus to Balmoral Beach from Mosman and Spit Junction that comes every 15 mins.
