Urban Winery Sydney

Urban Winery Sydney is the city’s first true urban winery and the heart of the A.Retief wine label. Located in The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park, Urban Winery Sydney features a full functioning open winery, a cellar door and wine bar, and event space. It’s a place to enjoy and discover the very best of NSW wine and produce, including resident winemaker A.Retief wines that are handcrafted on-site by head winemaker Alex Retief.

LOCATION

Transport yourself and your guests to the countryside of NSW without having to leave the CBD. The venue is only 10 mins from the CBD and Sydney Airport as well as close to car parking, Allianz Stadium, The Sydney Cricket Ground, Hordern Pavilion and a short stroll to Paddington and Surry Hills. It’s the ideal location for that team building night, corporate function or special private event.

THE EVENT SPACE
The event space can be hired exclusively or non-exclusively, ensuring that they can cater to groups of up to 250 people in an indoor and outdoor setting. The space is an actual winery, so your group will be surrounded by the wine barrels and equipment used to make the A.Retief wine label. They have a commercial kitchen onsite in which you can utilise one of the trusted catering partners or bring in your own chef to suit you and your guest's needs. And no need to stress about any of the details, you will be partnered with one of the friendly event team members to ensure the whole process is smooth and easy!

EXPERIENCES
In addition to the event space, Urban Winery Sydney can offer you and your guests a number of unique experiences to make your event even more special. These experiences include:- Tour and Tasting -Be toured through the winery by the head winemaker and learn about the art of the winemaking process. Arriving at the tasting table, there is a six-glass wine-flight set up for each person, where everyone passes through six wines from three different wine regions of NSW. Explore the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each wine whilst enjoying a charcuterie and cheese platter. Take home a bottle of A.Retief wine to remember the experience. Private group bookings available (Minimum 6 guests)Ongoing Tours run Monday and Wednesday from 11am to 12pm and 1pm to 2 pm.- Blending Class -These sessions are one of the more entertaining and informative classes. Separated into groups, you’ll sit down with the head winemaker and be taken through six single variety red wines, exploring the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each, whilst enjoying a shared charcuterie and cheese platter. Each group is then given measuring cylinders and time 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. Private group bookings available (Minimum 6 guests). Ongoing Classes run Tuesday 11am-1pm and 3pm-5pm. Monthly sessions held on the second Sunday of each month from 3pm-5pm.- Harvest Grape Stomping -Harvest. It’s the ultimate time of year in a winery. Urban Winery Sydney is the only place in the city where you can be part of it all. After being greeted in the winery, your group is taken on a tour through the facility to experience the art of the winemaking process right from stomping the grapes to sampling wines during different stages of the maturing process. Classes run each day from the second week in March for the four-week duration of harvest. Classes will be held from 11am-12:30pm and 3pm-4:30pm. Private group bookings are available.
