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.
