Park your­self at Un­Wined event

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - Rosanna Can­dler

OVER the past five years, Su­bi­aco’s an­nual foodie fes­ti­val Un­Wined WA has ma­tured just like a fine wine, says tele­vi­sion and ra­dio per­son­al­ity Ver­ity James.

James will host the Restau­rant Su­bi­aco theatre at the event this week­end, fea­tur­ing lo­cal chefs from Bistro des Artistes, Meeka, Witch’s Caul­dron, Su­bi­aco Ho­tel, Bistro Felix and Fun­tas­tico.

“Vis­i­tors in the first year were around 1800, and this year around 5000 are ex­pected to at­tend,” she said.

“Un­Wined 2015 will have even more ex­hibitors and a fan­tas­tic list of street food ven­dors on site.

“Eight of the nine lo­cal wine re­gions are rep­re­sented, with some amaz­ing new wines to try.

“The or­gan­is­ers have also in­tro­duced half-glass sales to al­low more wines to be en­joyed with­out overindulging.”

Blair Hill from Wines of WA will present ed­u­ca­tion ses­sions on white va­ri­etals for sum­mer, nat­u­ral wine and WA reds.

James said there would be a fan­tas­tic “pic­nic in the park” vibe with pic­nic benches, rugs and cush­ions for vis­i­tors to put their feet up and re­lax.

“There will be great live mu­sic from Tahlia Bee­son and the Proof Trio to en­joy, and of course only WA wine on show – so it’s very lo­cal,” she said.

“Peo­ple can also buy and or­der wines to store in a wine locker on site through­out the day.

“My picks would be to try the Arneis from Vine­yard 28 and Grenache from Faber Vine­yards, fol­lowed by a visit to the new Pasta Truck.”
