{Foodie Event & GIVEAWAY} City Wine – June 5th & 6th

City Wine

From the people that brought us the Unwined festival (Subiaco) and Sunset Wine (Scarborough) – City Wine is hitting the city on June the 5th and 6th. Last year, we visited City Wine, which is found at the Urban Orchard at Perth’s Cultural Centre – overlooking the city skyline. There’s lots of seating for enjoying a glass and some good food and live music.IMG_2049

It features some boutique wineries from many regions of WA – Margaret River, Ferguson Valley and Swan Valley to name a few; Swanbrook Wines, Happs (my fave!) 3 drops, Howling Wolves Wines, House of Cards Wine and many more. See the full list at City Wine’s website.

I do enjoy a vino of two; everything from a sweet Rose,’ to a fruity SSB, a nice smooth Shiraz or pinot noir. I had quite a few tastings and of those I really enjoyed the House of Cards Rose, it was excellent. That cellar door is located on Caves Road, Margret River (next to Gabriel Chocolate). I will be stopping by next time we’re in Margs!IMG_2065

I also really liked the Swanbrook Winery’s Chenin Blanc. I wasn’t familiar with this Swan Valley winery, but found out that it was formally Charlie’s Estate (and Evans and Tate before that). It’s since been taken over by a local family and they have a little café there too.IMG_2063

I also bumped into fellow blogger Casey – who has a great wine blog “Travelling Corkscrew”. If you love wine I’d definitely recommend that you check that blog out http://travellingcorkscrew.com/

Of course you can’t have a glass of wine without food – there are some excellent choices; Pizza Queens, The Hummus Club, Braised Bros – to name a few.IMG_2044

Entry is $25 ($21 if you book online), which includes all wine tastings and a tasting glass.

The urban orchard is located right next to the main city train station, so taking public transport there is super easy. More info at http://bit.ly/1RjB1kR

  1. House of Cards! Went there earlier this year and loved every single one of their wines. They have a young and funky vibe and……..there’s chocolate next door! Happy days 🙂

  2. Oranje tractor wines! I met the owner Pam at the WA signature Dish competition (she was a fellow competitor) and love her and her husbands organic wines run from their home in the Great Southern region!
