Taste Orange Food and Wine Festival

Things to do, Fairs and festivals

All the best wine and produce from the other side of the mountains comes to Watsons Bay

In celebration of some of Australia’s finest homegrown wineries, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel has teamed up with Brand Orange for the fourth consecutive year to bring a bit of the country to the bay.

The Taste Orange Food and Wine Festival will be held on Sunday May 7 at Robertson Park, from 11am, where you'll be able to enjoy fantastic views of Sydney Harbour, sample the flavours of Orange and buy straight from the suppliers right by the water. 

Prepackaged wine tasting tokens are available online but entry into the festival is free. If you want to avoid the queues, pre-purchase a tasting package ($40 per person) which includes ten wine tasting tokens at $4 each a the free branded glass to use throughout the festival ($5 to purchase on the day).

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel will bring the mouth-watering eats including festival favourites paella, pulled pork rolls, barbecue ribs, cheese boxes and Nutella doughnuts, as well as new editions including 'The Reuben' smoked brisket with sauerkraut and 'slaw.

For those too young to drink wine, there'll be a petting farm and face painting, plus live music and snacks like paella and pork rolls for people of all ages to enjoy. 

The partnership between Brand Orange and Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel will run throughout May to celebrate Aussie Wine Month. There is a series of wine master classes held by Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel on Thursday May 11, 18 and 25, and a carefully curated Orange wine list is available at the venue for the month of May.
