Everyone's favourite red has a dedicated festival
Pinot Palooza is marking its seventh year as Australia’s largest annual Pinot Noir festival, and while that may sound crazy specific, it goes hard every year because people love pinot, especially 100 pinots in one place that are open and ready for tasting.
The festival tours the country (with a pittstop in NZ) and this year the Sydney edition is being held at Carriageworks on Sunday October 7 from 11am. Tickets cost you $65, which is a bargain for all the wine tastings form the likes of Moondarra, Vinteloper, Mt Difficulty, Charteris, and Chatto, to name a few. Plus for a change of pace there will be a vermouth bar. There is also food stalls, classes, performances and good times in store. And if you want to upgrade there's a VIP experience with sparkling on arrival and access to a dedicated lounge for $105.
Line your stomach with Burger Project burgers, French food from La Bastide, organic street food from Agape, Chinese from Spice Temple, pizza from Epic Pizza, and cheese from the Artisan Cheese Room. Then you're ready to taste your way around the room, and take your wine glass home with you at the end of the day.
