If you thought the days of sipping wine by the beach with your mates were over now that winter is around the corner, think again. Coogee Bay Hotel is bringing the goods this weekend with its annual Wine Affairs Festival, celebrating homegrown Aussie wines and New Zealand drops. 

On Friday, May 17, an intimate six-course dinner, hosted by Yalumba winemaker Marc Van Halderen, will kick off the festivities. Each dish will be paired with new release wines from Yalumba — one of Australia's oldest wineries in the Barossa Valley — and there'll be live jazz, too. Places are extremely limited for this one, so bookings are essential. Tickets cost $99 per person.

Following the opening feast, the Wine Affairs Festival will run across Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, from midday until sundown. Expect to sip wines from over 20 wineries from around Australia and New Zealand, including Audrey Wilkinson, See Saw, Squealing Pig, De Bortoli and McGuigan Wines, plus more. Plus, you can pair your favourite drops with a selection of delicious cheeses, have fun in the photo booth and sit back and relax to live jazz.

And if you don't think you can face the journey home after all that wine tasting, turn your visit into a staycation. Coogee Bay Hotel is offering a special accommodation package for Wine Affairs visitors, which includes breakfast and tokens for the festival.

Coogee Bay Hotel's Wine Affairs will take place from May 17–19. To reserve a spot at the intimate Friday dinner, head this way. Entry to the Wine Affairs Festival is free and you can pre-purchase tokens for tastings and bottles over here.
