Slip into your spring best and trade in the bustling city life for an idyllic day in vino paradise as Wine Island returns for its 5th birthday.
From Friday 1 November – Sunday 3 November wine connoisseurs and adventurous day trippers alike will descend on Clark Island as Sydney Harbour transforms into a luxurious oasis of premium wines, beer, food, cocktails, Wine Selectors masterclasses, music, treasure hunts and more.
Recline in the sunshine as you set sail on the Batch & Co Spritz Boats, choosing either a Noosa, Sorrento or Bondi Spritz to savour on your short journey to paradise. Once ashore you may be forgiven for thinking you’ve landed in St Tropez as Rosé Imports will be pouring all the pink from the South of France. Pair this with an oyster from Mimosa Rock Oysters and experience life-changing bliss.
Embark on your own adventure at one of the island’s diverse wine huts – go on a tropical cocktail odyssey at Matso’s Island Oasis or pair a perfectly matched Chur Island burger with an expertly crafted brew at Jetty Road Brewing Co. A delectable selection of beverages also available from Smirnoff Infusions, K.Booch Alcoholic Kombucha, Manly Spirits, Brix Distillery and more.
Sip, savour and expand your horizons at one of the Island’s fabulous Wine Selectors masterclasses which include: Shake and Stir Like a Pro, a dark and deliciously interactive cocktail making experience; Something to Fizz About, an effervescent glimpse into your favourite bubbly beverages; and Blind Tasting Challenge where your vino knowledge will be put to the test for the chance to win a prize and earn the coveted title of Wine Island Champion
For those looking to be pampered in paradise, go no further than Napoleon Perdis Beauty Bar. Enjoy a sparkling glass of bubbles as you’re treated to a mini glam makeover or take relaxation to the next level with a professional micro massage.
The cherry on top, Wine Island is introducing a brand new bundle set to redefine opulence – The Hampton’s Experience. Soak in the atmosphere as you cruise through Sydney Harbour on your own floating island, The Hamptons. Once moored you will have access to The Hamptons for the entire event. This includes a custom food & beverage package (thanks to Wine Selectors) and a tranquil sanctuary that you can call your own.
Wine Island is a small island which means only a limited amount of guests are allowed per session. This ensures fewer crowds, more time to chat to winemakers and extra legroom on the island dance floor!
Whatever adventure you choose on Wine Island, you will be rewarded.
