15th Nov 2017

This weekend November 18th and 19th, wine and food festivaal Vino Paradiso is returning to The Rocks Sydney for two full days of mouth-watering deliciousness.

It's huge on fun and flavour with 50,000+ visitors expected for the adventure in local wine, food, coffee, craft beer, cider and spirits.

Bigger and better, this year Vino Paradiso will feature over 100 exhibitor stalls, representing 20 iconic Australian wine regions and 50 wineries showcasing over 500+ different wines. And there's plenty of other choice beverage offerings too.

This year multiple exhibitors have also creatively joined forces to deliver one of a kind, experimental combos! This week we were tempted by a delicious preview and are busting to share our top tips:

Black Star Pastry + The Rocks Brewing Co (for the most amazing buttery beer and beef pies)
Burgers By Josh + Young Henrys
Simmone Logue + Torbreck Wine
Sydney Oyster Girls (for fresh shucking by gorgeous girls)

Taking things to new heights, another exciting addition to the festival this year is the Sydney debut of the global phenomenon Dinner in the Sky. Guests are invited to strap themselves in and dine high up above The Rocks, at a dinner table suspended by a crane above Sydney Harbour. The experience features unbeatable views over Sydney Harbour and across the CBD surrounds, with bonus bragging rights!

Vino Paradiso is a free festival, with offerings from each exhibitor starting from just $5. << Another tip: currency cards are used throughout the festival so use the pre-purchase option ahead of the popular festival to beat the queues.
