On Sunday August the 13th Withams Tea and Coffee is sponsoring the Mudgee Wine and Food Fair which will be held at Balmoral Beach. It looks like I’ll be working the expresso machine for Master Latte Craftsman Smith of Withams Coffee and I was thinking this could be a great way to kick-off our ‘Back to the Glory days’ party.
I hope a few people will be able to make it down on the day, taste some wine, coffee, cheese and maybe take a Masterclass in either! A short Blurb is posted below but I encourage you to visit the official site which has many more details.
The plan at this stage is to have fun on the day before heading back to the apartment to continue the wine ‘tasting’ and swap stories about the glory days.
Each year, the Winemakers of Mudgee bring their fabulous award-winning Wines to Sydney at the famous, Mudgee Wine and Food Fair.
Located at picturesque Balmoral Beach, surrounded by local produce and a great array of food, arts, crafts and textiles, the Winemakers of Mudgee set-up the annual Wine & Food Fair – so you can get to sample the delights of the Mudgee region without leaving the city!
The Balmoral Fair kicks off at 10am on August 13th, 2006 and it’s Sydney’s chance to see what great food and wine is on offer from the Mudgee region. Last tasting are at 5pm and tasting tokens are only available until 4pm. A live band will also be providing entertainment.
The Fair is located around the Rotunda at the western end of Balmoral Beach. Free Shuttle Buses will be operating in a continuous circuit from Balmoral Beach to Military and Spit Roads via Raglan Street and Awaba Street throughout the day. As parking can become congested at the Beach, we do suggest you use this park-and-ride service. Buses will run at 15-minute intervals and can also be hailed from anywhere along the route between 9.30 am and 5.00 pm.
Full timetables for all bus and ferry travel to and from Balmoral, can be downloaded from the State Transit Authority.
