Winter Wine

Fine food and wine fans are invited to warm up this season as Winter Wine returns, with guests to discover the finest drops from Australian and international winemakers and producers as they follow an indulgent Wine Trail through the picturesque streets of The Marine Village.

The Winter Wine Festival returns from Saturday, July 22 to Sunday, July 23, as The Village raises a toast in celebration of the most decadent spoils of the season across a full weekend of wine tasting and appreciation events, fine dining and live entertainment.

Proudly presented by Sanctuary Cove, the festival showcases wines from up to 40 local, national and international regions, with customers able to taste or buy a wide range of wines on display through a coupon-based redemption system as they meander along the Wine Trail, stopping along the way at feature areas spread across two pavilions.

The Wine Trail culminates at the Sirromet Wine Bar, hosted by event partners Sirromet Wines and located within a specially themed pop-up precinct named The Vineyard, while top chefs from The Marine Village’s leading restaurants and the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort have curated unique culinary experiences for the festival.

Leading an impressive schedule of entertaining and informative wine appreciation events, renowned wine writer and champagne expert, Ken Gargett, returns as a special guest presenter, sharing his knowledge and passion during champagne masterclasses at the Sirromet Wine Bar, taking place from 11am to noon each day, while live music enhances the festival atmosphere.
