The seventh annual Pyrmont Festival kicks off on Saturday May 13 with a 15-day series of wine tasting dinners across the Pyrmont and Ultimo peninsula
Showcasing good produce at its finest, the Pyrmont Festival brings together the charm of Mudgee and best of the city in a spectacular two-week spread of food, wine and art.
Chefs at dining establishments in Pyrmont and Ultimo have joined forces with some of the Mudgee region’s most celebrated wineries to design degustation menus. Each course is specially prepared to complement a different Mudgee wine. Diners will have the opportunity to meet the winemaker as well as the chef.
The centrepiece of the festival is a free, two-day family friendly event at Pirrama Park on May 20-21 that features live music, fairground rides, children’s entertainment and an exhibition of artworks from local and Mudgee-based artists. Sample a few tastings, mingle with winemakers, graze on a wide range of gourmet foods and walk it all off, as you explore some of the 100-or-so stalls on offer.
Mudgee wineries Moothi Estate, First Ridge Wines, Manners Wines and newcomers Slowfox and Elephant Mountain Wines will be featured at the festival. Plus, there’ll be food offers at Pyrmont restaurants including Pizzaperta, the Apprentice and Pyrmont Point Hotel.
