City Wine at the Urban Orchard Perth

Celebrate WA wine with City Wine at Urban Orchard, part of the Perth Cultural Centre.

City wine boasted some of the area’s best boutique wineries

Last weekend Wine and food WA hosted City Wine, their Urban Orchard nestled in Perth Cultural Centre.

City wine boasted some of the area’s best boutique wineries, mixed with some wonderful musicians and some delicious food, a winning mix for a girl like me.

At the entry gates we were given our tasting glasses which entitled us to sample all the wine.

It was only logical to start at the first tent and work our way round.. serious question time… red or white?

I’ll admit I’m not a huge drinker, I don’t know much about wine but the rose from the guys at House of Cards wine (Margaret River) was incredible. We were doubly won over when they told us they make it into a slushy in summer.

We stopped in awe and watching the cocktail gastronomy guys make their incredible nitrogen cocktails.

There was a great mix of food available from those sticky ribs to a falafel box at the hummus club (which is the best thing ever if you’ve not tried one yet!).

The inside of the tents looked a little like this, wine everywhere.

And after a recommendation from someone on instagram we made it our duty to have a Cabernato mojito, and boy am I glad we did, it was brilliant, the perfect summer drink. Apart from maybe that rose slushy…

As the evening went on the music tent begun to fill up, filled with happy smiley people having a brilliant time. It was magical.

Entry to city wine was $25 per person (including the tasting glass), sadly it was for one weekend only but I’m crossing everything they host another one soon. Wine and Food WA host events throughout the year, Unwined being their next scheduled event which falls on October 21 & November 1 2015.

Thanks for a great evening City Wine.
