The city-based Urban Winery Sydney

Discover and enjoy the full experience of a working winery at Sydney's only truly city-based winery, in Moore Park, only a short ride from our Potts Point and Randwick properties. Transport yourself to the vineyards of regional NSW as you learn about the aroma, structure and palate-feel of different wines from head winemaker Alex Retief.

It is a destination for local and international tourists wanting a one-stop-shop for NSW wines as well as those who simply want a great place to enjoy good wine locally.

A community feel, inclusive atmosphere. People feel part of the process, a sense of ownership of the brand.

WHERE: Head to Urban Winery Sydney, located at The Entertainment Quarter, 122 Lang Road, Moore Park (12 min by taxi/Uber from Potts Point and 8 min from Randwick).

WINE BLENDING SESSION

WHEN: Monday and Tuesday, from 3 pm to 5 pm (please arrive 10 min before to start on time).

WHAT: These sessions are one of the more entertaining and informative classes. Separated into groups of four, you’ll sit down with our head winemaker and be taken through six single variety red wines, exploring the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each. Each group is then given measuring cylinders and half an hour to come up with their favourite blend, for example, mixing 50% shiraz, 30% merlot, 10% petit verdot and 10% tempranillo. These ‘favourite blends’ are then collated and poured to the groups, so they can be blind-tasted and judged by everyone involved – with an ultimate winner appointed on the day. If you really like your blend, you can purchase a dozen of your wine with your own personalised label – delivered to your door the following week.

COST: special price for all Sydney Lodges guests of $120 / person (instead of $150 retail price).
