What better way to enjoy a long weekend than by taking a trip to Fremantle for a day (or two) of wine appreciation, live entertainment and merriment? Conveniently falling on the Labour Day long weekend in 2021, from Feb 27 – 28, On Cloud Wine promises to be one of the top wine and food events of the year, and is the perfect place to discover new beverages and celebrate old favourites from local WA wineries.
At a beautiful location overlooking the harbour at the B Shed in Fremantle, On Cloud Wine will be running over four sessions on Saturday and Sunday. There will be over 30 stalls including wineries, breweries and distilleries, with tasty tapas and live music to complete the perfect summer’s day out.
Upon entry you’ll receive a mini Plumm wine tasting glass which is yours to keep, and then you can venture forth and explore as many wines as you please, before picking up a few bottles of your favourites to take home, or grabbing a glass to enjoy as you watch the sun set over the sea.
What to expect at On Cloud Wine
The perfect accompaniment to your day of wine and food appreciation, there’s a great line-up of local Perth musicians who will be performing some chill tunes. Stay tuned for the artist line-up!
On Cloud Wine offers the rare opportunity to participate in cellar door tastings from WA’s top wineries, without having to travel more than a few footsteps between them. You’ll be able to stock up the cellar for summer after discovering your new favourite wines, or pick up bottles from wineries that you can only purchase direct from. It’s the ultimate wine tour, and a great way to support the local wine industry.
Local Craft Beers
If you’re not a wine drinker, there’ll still be lots of locally produced beverages for you to explore. Whether you’re a lager-lover or mad about pale ales, there will be a range of full, mid-strength, and seasonal brews for you to enjoy. Cider enthusiasts, you’ve not been overlooked, there’ll also be a selection of local ciders on offer too.
Spirits & Cocktails
Choose between gin, vodka, pisco and whiskey, and local WA distilleries will mix up a delicious cocktail for you! You’ll also be able to purchase bottles to replenish your home bar.
To tingle your tastebuds and help soak it all up, some of Perth’s most popular foodies will be set up, dishing out delicious tapas and street eats from food trucks. Relax on the high tables with a wine as you enjoy a stunning Freo sunset.
So that you don’t have to lug your bounty around with you all day or night, there will be a complimentary wine locker service where you can store your bottles until it’s time to go home.
Please note that the registration desk and most wineries will be cashless so make sure you bring along your card or pre purchase your ticket to avoid any hassle.
