Spring into wine fes­ti­val

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Money Talks -

WEEK­END fes­ti­val fans can dive straight back in this Satur­day and Sun­day by head­ing to Su­bi­aco for UnWined Su­bi­aco.

City events last week­end in­clud­ing BeauVine Food and Wine Fes­ti­val and Bon­jour Perth en­joyed strong support and fine weather, and with Perth’s spring now in full bloom, CMS Events di­rec­tor Richard Camp­bell ex­pects the big­gest UnWined turnout yet at Mar­ket Square.

UnWined is la­beled WA’s pre­mium wine and food fes­ti­val and this year is sup­ported by nearly 40 winer­ies.

Among those in­volved are Swan Val­ley favourites Sit­tella and Houghtons, along with some lesser known bou­tique vine­yards, which rely heav­ily on events such as UnWined Su­bi­aco for aware­ness and new prod­uct in­tro­duc­tions.

Harvey bou­tique win­ery Moo­jelup Farm is re­leas­ing the new vin­tage of its Cut­snake Sparkling Shi­raz – a flag­ship wine hand-made in the method tra­di­tion­nelle – and Margaret River’s Frog Choir Wines will re­lease its 2011 Shi­raz Caber­net as part of a ver­ti­cal tast­ing of three slightly aged reds.

Mr Camp­bell said new ad­di­tions this year in­cluded the VIP Ex­pe­ri­ence Club Lounge ($127.50) and af­ter­party ar­range­ments with sev­eral Su­bi­aco bars, in­clud­ing Refuge Small Bar, Dou­ble Dou­ble, Bistro Felix, Su­bi­aco Ho­tel and Vil­lage Bar.
