Taste Orange @ Barangaroo
The Nawi Cove at Barangaroo reserve came alive last Sunday with an array of delicious wine and food offerings from the Orange region of NSW, known for its outstanding reputation for fresh produce and new cool-climate wines.
This was the first Taste Orange Festival held in Barangaroo, a different feel from the venue at Martin Place in the CBD. With Sydney’s skyline as the soaring backdrop and the spectacular water views of the new harbour headland, this wine and food food festival has certainly brought a balance of aromas, earthy and spicy flavours to everyone’s taste and palate to this exciting destination.
As the day progressed, queues quickly built up at every wine stall to taste some of the fine wines brought by the following wineries; Tamburlaine Organic Wines, Logan Wines, Boree Lane Wines, Dindima Wines, Philip Shaw Wines, Gilbert by Simon Gilbert, Heifer Station, Highland Heritage Estate, Ross Hill Wines and Slow Wine Co.
Picnic goers spread their rugs and soaked up the sun while enjoying the entertainment provided throughout the day. Delicious food and drink offerings were provided by Dreamtime Tuka, El-Phoenician, Indigenous Cultural Adventures Bush Tucka, Jimmy Liks, Milla Cordial, Serendipity Ice Cream, Oysters Unplugged, Sofrito Paella, The Little Hopper Coffee, and The Molong Farm.
One of the highlights of this event was the participation of Dreamtime Tuka and Indigenous Cultural Adventure Bush Tucka, as the Orange’s cultural food ambassador showcasing their gourmet food utilising native Australian ingredients, with such delectable offerings as kangaroo burgers, pies, coconut slices, to name but a few.
Pre-purchased online wine tasting pack for this event was $40, (entitles for 10 tasting tickets and a free wine glass). Check out Taste Orange for all their calendar events @ https://brandorange.com.au/
