We all love a good wine tour, but sometimes the hassle of getting out to the countryside and making sure you’ve found a reliable designated driver to take you out and about can be a struggle. Well, struggle no more; say hello to Urban Wine Walk – a self-guided wine trail that’s coming to Fremantle on Saturday 20 August.
The Urban Wine Walk will see the streets and laneways of Freo come alive with a line-up of the best pubs and bars turning into a cellar door festival of sorts – with each venue offering tastings of delicious wines from 12 Western Australian and South Australian winemakers combined.
As you bounce from each locale, tipsy stumbles around the streets won’t be an uncommon sight, come the boozy Saturday. Luckily, each participating venue is conveniently located within walking distance from each other. Simply decide which spot you’d like to start from and you’re off! It’s basically a glorified pub crawl, but fancier and with wine.
The Urban Wine Walk will unify: Freo Social, Old Courthouse, Emily Taylor, Strange Company, Nieuw Ruin, Palace Arcade, The Old Synagogue, Republic of Fremantle, Lions and Tigers, Benny’s Yard, Norfolk Hotel, and Federal Hotel.
And the juicy wine labels on offer will be: Delinquente Wine Co, Vino Volta, Goon Tycoons, Vallee Du Venom, Paul Nelson Wines, Hither & Yon, Black Cocky Wines, Juniper Estate, Silent Noise, Morlet Wine, Fervor Wine, and Zonte’s Footstep. With all these tastings you’re likely going to be super into at least one of them in particular, and as luck would have it, your Urban Wine Walk ticket includes a $25 voucher for event day wine orders.
Obviously hanger is imminent too, so your ticket includes a $10 food voucher to spend at your nominated starting venue, before 1pm.
Get on down to Freo between 12pm and 4pm on August 20 and shake off those winter blues. Secure your tickets using the link below.
