Sunshine. Great wine. Delicious food. Family friendly. What more could you ask for on a Sunday afternoon in Sydney?
A taste of Mudgee hit Pyrmont in Sydney last weekend and it was definitely an event to mark on your calendar for future. This is a 10-day festival presented by the Pyrmont Ultimo Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Mudgee Tourism and Wine Grape Growers.
We headed down with the family and some friends, keen to enjoy the last of the Autumn sunshine and try some new wines given our recent trip to Mudgee was limited in what we could taste. It was a sensational afternoon! Not only was the food delicious, music entertaining and the views spectacular (ok maybe I am biased living nearby) but with over 120 wines on tasting there was plenty to enjoy!
The event was well thought out, with plenty of opportunities to try the wines and a great range of different food stalls intermingled amongst the vibrant crowd. Importantly, it was also family friendly. A separate section for kids to enjoy the animal nursery and entertainment by Barnado’s Australia meant that we could enjoy the food and wine whilst the kids were having fun. It was also a plus to be located next to one of Sydney’s best playgrounds at Pirrama Park so when the cash for the rides ran thin, the kids could play whilst we sat down and enjoyed a glass of wine in the glorious sunshine.

Budding artists, young and old, had their masterpieces on display for the Pyrmont Art Prize. And the grass was scattered with stunning sculptures – I wish I had a garden big enough to feature some of the beautiful work on display!
The festival continues until 26 May with other great events throughout Pyrmont showcasing the wine and food from Mudgee region. Dinners, lunches and wine tastings that highlight all that’s great about the food of Pyrmont and producers in Mudgee like Robert Stein, Bunnamagoo wines, Quilty Wines. Clear your diaries, make a booking and head along!
