Enjoy a taste of the good life by sampling sophisticated cool-climate wines, food and fresh local produce from the Orange district in the heart of the city
More than 20 premium wineries, food and tourism stallholders will be showcasing their cool-climate wares at this year’s Taste Orange @ Sydney in Martin Place. Grab the opportunity to meet the wine-growers, winemakers and producers in person for a friendly introduction to the region and an insight into what makes wines from the Orange region stand out from the rest. Hint: it’s all in the elevation.
Entry is free, with wine tastings and food available for purchase at the event. Wine tastings at the event are $8 per full glass (120ml), or $4 per half glass (60ml) of wine, beer or cider. Taste Orange @ Sydney branded wine glasses for wine tastings are available at an additional $5 per glass, and once purchased can be reused as you taste wines from the different stallholders.
To save time and to be able to jump straight in for cool-climate wine tastings, you can pre-purchase a Taste Orange @ Sydney Wine Tasting Pack online via www.wewilltakeyouthere.com.au.
Newtown’s favourite fromagerie, the Stinking Bishops, are hosting an in-store, month-long menu promotion of the Orange region throughout September. The Stinking Bishops team will also be joining Taste Orange @ Sydney with a stall featuring the best Taste of Orange Mac and Cheese this side of the sandstone curtain.
