City Cellar Door launches in Sydney for Aussie Wine Month

Last night Wine Australia’s City Cellar Door popped up in Sydney’s CBD for the first of a two night run to celebrate the fourth annual Aussie Wine Month.

Winemakers from regions across Australia poured a selection of their wines to Sydneysiders while Oysters Australia served freshly shucked oysters and Salumi Australia offered charcuterie.

After a couple of weeks of wild and wet weather conditions, Sydney played its part and provided blue skies and sunshine for the event.

In between wine tastings, AWRI used their Aroma Bar to help consumers smell their way to more wine knowledge, learning about some of the main aromas found in wine.

The event is on again tonight between 3 – 8pm on the Australia Square Forecourt, 264 George St Sydney. The City Cellar Door is one of 206 events taking place across the country in celebration of Aussie Wine Month.

Winemakers and wineries featured at the City Cellar Door:

  • Carlo Pizzini – Pizzini Wines (VIC)
  • Corrina Wright – Yarnbomb and Oliver’s Taranga (SA)
  • Jeremy Dineen – Josef Chromy (Tasmania)
  • Jim Chatto – McWilliam’s Wines (NSW)
  • Keith Hentschke – Hentley Farm (SA)
  • Luke Skeer – Wynns Coonawarra Estate (SA)
