The Cricketers Arms is hosting more than 20 of the country's top small and independent natural wine producers for a Sunday afternoon vino party in collaboration with Tasmania's Bottle Tops. Billed as a day of wine, food and music, Bottle Tops will be hitting up Hobart during Dark Mofo on Sunday, June 18 — but, in the leadup, it'll also be bringing a mini version of the culinary festival to Sydney, as hosted at one of the city's most beloved pubs.

The day will also be accompanied by snacks from the pub's flash new bistro Chez Crix; the kitchen's General Manager and drinks list curator Jackson Duxbury is a Bottle Tops alum. The French-inspired eats will be included in your ticket price alongside all of the day's tastings.

Some of the producers you can sample at the wine-fuelled party include Lofi, Momento Mori, Nikau Farm, Limus, Fox Wine Company and Frankly This Wine Was Made by Bob. Once you've made your way around to chat with all of the winemakers, you can also expect the Bottle Tops team to crack open a few rare wines to pour at the bar.

The tastings will be on from 2–5pm for ticketholders, but The Crix isn't one to cut a party short, so you can expect the good times to keep rolling throughout the night — and Marty Doyle will be on the decks providing music until late.

After years of throwing wine-tasting parties down in Tassie, this will be Bottle Tops' first time setting up shop for a get-together in Sydney. You don't want to miss it.
