Whether you like a semillon from the Hunter Valley, a pinot noir from the Yarra Valley, or a robust shiraz from the Barossa, you can get it all at the inaugural Lakeside Long Lunch. For one glorious day in September (Saturday 28), representatives from some of Australia's best wine regions will gather in Sydney's west.

Hosted on the idyllic banks of Sydney International Regatta Centre's lakes in Penrith, Lakeside Long Lunch is all about spending several boozy hours sampling vinos. You'll get to taste fine drops from Margaret River's Robert Oatley Vineyards, Bimbadgen Wines from the Hunter Valley, and Yarra Valley's Oakridge Estate. Plus, there'll be drops from the Barossa Valley, Mudgee, Orange and further afield. 

In between tastings, you'll want to tuck into lunch, too. You can choose from an opulent lobster gnocchi with pomodoro sauce and vanilla oil; braised lamb soft tacos topped with pomegranate; and charred Middle Eastern chicken with couscous and garlic yoghurt. Meanwhile, vegans and vegetarians can feast on a chickpea and tofu coconut curry served with jasmine rice and coriander sambal. There'll also be food trucks on site — think food from Agape Organic, Busfood and Arlecchino.

There'll also be music soundtracking the event, with tunes from Suite Az, Voli K, The Lovefools, Hype Band and Will D Music. You can expect a lot more entertainment and activities on the day, too.

Your $99 ticket covers everything, so you can kick back, relax and focus on the important things in life: eating and drinking. Got cash to splash? You can upgrade to the VIP package for $349.

Lakeside Long Lunch at Penrith's Sydney International Regatta Centre is taking place on Saturday, September 28, from 10am. To purchase tickets, head here
