Wine Island

Enjoy a drop in Sydney Harbour this November when Wine Island returns to drop anchor. Now in its third year, Australia’s most tropical and unique wine festival, Wine Island, is back, returning to Clark Island, Sydney Harbour from Friday 10 November to Sunday 12 November, 2017.

This is the place where you can feel like you’re leaving the city while entering the very heart of it. So, pack your bags, throw away your cares and discover a piece of paradise filled with great wine, food, music, silent discos, masterclasses, treasure hunts and more!

This exquisite yet relatively untouched piece of paradise is a small island so only a limited number of ‘holiday- makers’ can attend the event – giving Wine Island its famed first-class feel. This also allows for visitors to chat one-on-one to the friendly winemakers, or simply lie back and soak in the view with some of the top drops from around Australia and abroad.

Your holiday begins aboard the Luxe Estate Bubbles Boats with a glass of sparkling for the short journey over to the island. Once ashore, you’ll sip your way through a selection of over 100 new wave and classic wines from De Lisio, Taylor Made Wines, Yarra Social, 6ft6, Riot Wine Co. and many more.

Also making its way back to Wine Island is the world famous Frosé, joined by other delicious wine-based cocktails including an exotic Malbec Sangria and Prosecco Margaritas. 

Ensuring no one goes hungry on this deserted island, Chur will be popping up in paradise to satisfy every foodies dreams. Former fine dining (Assiette, Banc) and award-winning chef Warren Turnbull, the mastermind behind the cult Chur Burger, is curating a bespoke tropical menu of freshly shucked oysters, cheese platters, Hawaiian poke, fish tacos, spit-roasted lamb pitas and of course, his mouth-watering burgers.

Masterclasses presented by Wine Selectors will have you pairing music with wine in our smash hit of 2016, the Silent Disco Drops, along with Dessert Island where our sweet-toothed holiday-makers will enjoy leading dessert wines with delicious sweets. There’ll also be some Vino Trivia and Cold Blooded Reds to indulge in - it’s the next big wine trend so get the lowdown on the best reds for chillin’ while you’re chillin’ this summer.

Get ‘Down To Earth’ with Cracka Wines at Wine Island: a cellar door-meets-day spa experience for holiday- makers. Lie back on day beds and try a range of biodynamic wines whilst getting a foot scrub, then take home a grape vine to plant happy memories until next years’ event rolls around.
