Wine Island 2018

Returning for its fourth consecutive year, Sydney’s favourite wine and food festival, Wine Island, is an exclusive opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy ‘a drop in the harbour’. 

This year, Wine Island will be anchored on Clark Island for 3 days from Friday 2 November to Sunday 4 November and will be hosting a smorgasbord of Australian and international wines, cocktails, silent discos and delicious eats while you soak up the view of our picturesque and world famous harbour. 

Visitors will reach the island by hopping aboard Bellini Boats, to enjoy a glass of Bellini Cipriani as the journey towards paradise begins. Once on the island, visitors can enjoy a hilltop picnic sipping award-winning wines, join the fun of island games and treasure hunts, visit the Wine Selectors Masterclass, have a dance in the Wine Island Silent Disco or simply enjoy the excellent line-up of beverages and food choices. Visitors can expect Chur Burger Food Trucks, serving only the best, including juicy burgers, loaded fries, Mediterranean pitas, fluffy boa buns, Hunter Valley Cheese Co. platters, Ralston Bros. oysters, and finishing the day with gelato and coffee from N2 Gelato, or a visit to the Dessert Island thanks to Ashley Smith, Head Pastry Chef at 12 Micron.

For those who are looking to try a tipple other than wine, they will be pleased to know that this year there will be the biggest line-up of alternatives that Wine Island has ever seen, including the Gage Roads Brewing Co. Beer Garden who will be pouring their award-winning ales from Freo, WA, the Archie Rose Gin bar where you can indulge in a range of premium gin cocktails including the Island Spritz, or the Pimms Garden bar who will be serving refreshing Pimms Cocktails all day long.
