Australia's first large scale city winery, Urban Winery Sydney, has brought a whole new level of local to St Peters' Creative Precinct 75. Owner and winemaker Alex Retief's wines have a strong focus on locality, with many grapes sourced from his parent's biodynamic vineyard in the Gundagai wine region just outside of Wagga Wagga. As he promised upon opening, Retief is now expanding his love of all things seasonal by inviting Aussie chefs with similar homegrown attitudes to join him on the last Sunday of each month for a degustation lunch.
Joining Retief this month on Sunday, September 25 is the team from Newtown's Alfie's Kitchen The four-course meal will be paired with six A. Retief Wines, as well as discussion on the chef and winemaker's compatible food and wine philosophies.
There's no better way to finish off a weekend then with a long, fine lunch — and this is sure to be one of the finest. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
