Ahhhh, the sun in your face, sea-breeze in your hair…. and all of the wine in your glass! What better way to spend a Sunday, than exploring the glorious epicurean delights of the Hunter Valley whilst gazing out over the ocean?
On Sunday Oct 7, the sunny Balmoral Beach esplanade will be blessed with the best the Hunter Valley has to offer. Wine Selectors will be presenting Australia’s oldest wine region, to cheers of delight.
It’s the perfect opportunity to combine your love of food, wine and tunes at the beach in one fine day. Arrive to relaxed jazz from Soul Shack Entertainment, progressing to live DJ sets throughout the day to keep you vibing.
A highlight of the day will be six Alfresco Tastes wine and barbecue sessions featuring expertly paired tasting glasses of Hunter Valley wines with a delicious gourmet barbecue dish. Hosted by Wine Selectors in partnership with Everdure by Heston Blumenthal, each session will showcase various barbecuing techniques and entertaining tips, as one of Everdure’s talented chefs creates a sumptuous summer dish on the barbecue.
In addition to a wide range of the region’s finest wine producers, for the first time, Uncorked Balmoral will be host to the Hunter Distillery, producer of an exceptional range of top shelf spirits, including vodkas, liqueurs, schnapps and the award-winning Copperwave Distilled Gin.
