Calling all wine-fiends – State of Wine is making a grand return to Perth’s State Buildings this July, and the wine team are raring to fill your glasses half full.
Come Wednesday 19 until Sunday 22 July, the St Georges Terrace ground zero will once again host a series of wine-focused events accompanied by sensational food, with the vision to shine a light on the great, the curious, the unfamiliar, and the rare drops from all corners of the globe.
You can get stuck right into a Sunday tasting session with WA pet nats, methode Champenoise sparklers, beer and cider at Beer Corner’s Fizzy Rascal, or perhaps The Greatest Wine Dinner of All Time at Wildflower where you can celebrate the best New World pinot noir and classic, rare Burgundian producers.
A group of the State Buildings’ eateries are getting in on the action too, with Post, Wine Merchant, and Long Chim delivering a range of indulgent food and vino events across the five-day span.
State of Wine curator, as well as the Buildings’ award-winning Director of Wine, Emma Farrelly, says, “We do a lot of food-focused events at State Buildings throughout the year, but this mini-festival puts the spotlight very much on wine, and it gives me a real chance to think outside the bubble and curate some fascinating experiences.”
“It’s a big week – some of these events are for hard core wine enthusiasts and others broader in their appeal, but they all have curiosity and a love of wine at their core.”
State of Wine is the place to be for vino aficionados and the curious alike – check out the full 2023 program here.
