Perth’s own winter wine festival, City Wine, is back for another year at its lush new home of Russell Square on May 21 & 22 in 2021. The new venue is surrounded by beautiful trees, with a carpet of soft grass, setting the stage for the ultimate outdoor wine festival.
With an exciting lineup of incredible WA wines, beers, cider, cocktails and food options, there’s something on offer to suit everyone’s palate. It’s the perfect place to discover new flavours and celebrate old favourites as you delve into the local wine scene.
Grab yourself a beverage, chill out to tunes from local artists and DJs at the entertainment stage and keep yourself warm with plenty of heaters and undercover areas. If you’re feeling a bit fancy and want to take the experience to the next level, you can go for a VIP Park Lounge ticket. With a VIP pass you’ll gain access to the exclusive lounge retreat where you’ll be able to enjoy Bunkers Wines, and a selection of beer and food.
With all of WA’s best wineries coming together in one place, City Wine is also the perfect opportunity to restock your wine cellar and support local winemakers as you have wine-filled night out with friends. Upon entry, you’ll receive a Plumm wine tasting glass which is yours to keep, and then you can venture forth and explore as many wines as you please.
