In yet another tentative step towards a fully vaxed summer, Sydney’s favourite island wine party, Wine Island, has announced its return next year. From March 18–20, the vino festival is set to take over Clark Island in Sydney Harbour, with an array of boutique Aussie and international wineries, as well as bars and beer gardens, plenty of food options and a bunch of masterclasses.
Fever-Tree Ferries will shuttle guests to the island; a cocktail for your journey is included in the ticket price. Once you’ve embarked, head to any number of stalls from wineries including Chateau Tanunda, Hungerford Hill, Nepenthe, Tulloch and Rosabelle.
If you prefer drinks of the non-grape variety, there’s plenty of alternatives. Pull up a seat in the 4 Pines Beer Garden, prop up at the Archie Rose Gin Bar or get fizzy with it at the Fever-Tree Island Spritz Bar. There’ll also be rum from Brix Distillers, whisky from Ned, Grainshaker vodka and Brookvale Union seltzer, as well as bars offering frosés and prosés (a prosecco slushie), punch and iced tea.
