Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - Lisa Thomas

IN­DUL­GENCE and deca­dence will be on of­fer at this year’s Su­bi­aco food and wine fes­ti­val Un­Wined.

The two-day cel­e­bra­tion, which is in its sixth year, will high­light lo­cal chefs and eater­ies, and West Aus­tralian wines and pro­duce.

This year’s event will also in­clude a spe­cial cock­tail af­ter-party, or­gan­ised by the City of Su­bi­aco, for those who want to con­tinue their cel­e­bra­tions into the night.

CMS Events man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Richard Camp­bell said this year’s event of­fered a bit more el­e­gance.

“We’ve in­tro­duced a new el­e­ment with a VIP club lounge ticket, which in­cludes two glasses of wine and a gourmet bar­be­cue, and gives some­where for peo­ple to sit down and re­lax,” he said.

Mr Camp­bell said the wine ses­sions would fo­cus on this sea­son’s trend­ing wines.

“In the wine ses­sions we are fo­cus­ing on rose and sparkling, which are trend­ing at the mo­ment, and other emerg­ing brands like mal­bec, which is mak­ing a come­back,” he said.

“We’ll have the lat­est and award-win­ning wines on show and some of the Su­bi­aco precinct’s best chefs.”

The new pre­mium club lounge ex­pe­ri­ence will over­look the fes­ti­val from the top ter­race, with an un­der­cover garden court­yard area avail­able all day. A host of new wine and food ex­hibitors will be on show, in­clud­ing Bel­larmine Wines, Gil­berts Wine, Wil­low Bridge Es­tate, Pan­de­mo­nium Es­tate, Gage Roads Brew­ing, Lange’s Fran­k­land Wines, Grace Farm, Moo­jelup Farm, Print Hall, Twin Beaks, Saigon Eats and Coco Ly­cious.

Guests can also en­joy live mu­sic, cook­ing demon­stra­tions, and tapas style food and wine for

sale. Su­bi­aco Mayor Heather Hen­der­son said the City was ex­cited to col­lab­o­rate with the event. “The Un­Wined fes­ti­val is in its sixth year and should be cel­e­brated as a great Su­bi­aco event,” she said. “The City had or­gan­ised a cock­tail af­ter-party, with bars of­fer­ing free cock­tail tast­ings, which will high­light the great hos­pi­tal­ity on of­fer in Su­bi­aco.” Un­Wined will be held on October 29 and 30 from 11.30am to 5pm.
