Four days dedicated to the drink of summer
Of all the ways you can celebrate the October long weekend, sitting by the harbour and smashing some rosé is very high on our list. Happily, Opera Bar agrees with us on this one, and is throwing a four day pink wine party to celebrate the return of the sun.
Tickets cost $35 if you buy them in advance, or $40 on the door, and that buys you three drinks, which is pretty good in a city where we're used to paying $15 for a glass of wine. You'll be able to drink pink with bubbles, care of the Yangarra Pet Nat Sparkling from McLaren Vale, and still varieties will come from New Zealand, France and local wineries. They'll all be on show in the Rosé Room, a pop-up rosé bar that they've set up in the Meat & Cheese Room.
If you like your rosé super chilled, they'll be serviing frosé (natch), plus a twist on everyone's afternoon bevvie of choice, the Spritz, made with rosé. If you get pecking there'll be oyster and cheese platters; live music will keep you rolling; and if you like a little accessorising with your wine the first 50 people to arrive each day will receive a flower crown or lei. Add those Insta-classic harbour views and you will be living your best life.
