Unwined is found at Market Square Park – right next to Subi Oval. There’s lots of shady seating for enjoying a glass of vino and some good food and excellent live music.
It features some boutique vineyards from many wine regions of WA – Margaret River, Ferguson Valley and the Swan Valley to name a just few; 3drops, Cowaramup & Clown Fish Wines, Fermoy Estate, Oakover Wines & Fiori Coffee, Nannup Ridge Wines, Sittella Winery, Howling Wolves Wines, House of Cards Wine and many many more.
There’s something for everyone – wine classes and cooking demos (by Chloe & Kelly from the 2014 My Kitchen Rules) and also some food related stands; The Truffle & Wine Co, Pukara Estate Oils & Vinegar, Chillin’ Out in WA, Hampshire on Eighth etc
I do enjoy a vino of two; everything from a sweet Rose,’ to a fruity SSB, a nice smooth Shiraz or pinot noir. Since it was a beautiful warm day, I felt like tasting a few rose style of wines.
I stopped off at the Howling Wolves stand for a chat and to try their summery Cabernato wine. It’s excellent chilled and if you add a bit of mint and lime, also a great mojito style drink. I really liked it as it’s super smooth.
Happs is one of my all time fave wineries – I HAVE to stop there every time I’m in the South West. Though I’ve had it a million times, I just couldn’t go past a drop of Fuchsia. Also they do a preservative free red and white, which helps lessen my wine headaches!
Little Chef (it’s free entry for kids) and I shared a fab meat tasting plate from the Tapas Queens. There were chorizo, croquettes, grilled beef and chicken skewers, grilled veggies, bread, cheese, nuts – the works! It was absolutely delicious.
