‘Food and Wine by the River’

Sunday 5 November, 2017

Tambourine Bay Reserve, Riverview. 1

The Orange region is fast becoming known for its exceptional food, fresh produce and cool-climate wines – food and wine stallholders will be featuring as the ambassadors for the region for ‘Taste Orange @ Lane Cove during the ‘Food and Wine by the River’ event on Sunday 5 November.

Soak up the sunshine with friends and family while enjoying some of New South Wales’ finest cool-climate wine, food and fresh produce. Entertainment will be provided throughout the day.  Lane Cove residents, their friends and family and visitors are all welcome to join in the fun for a fantastic Sunday afternoon wine and food adventure by the river.

This event is child and pet-friendly – there’s free face-painting and a kind-farm for the kids, and as long as dogs are on a leash they can come too! There will also be a free shuttle bus running from the Lane Cove library down to the event so you can leave the car at home. If you’re interested in dabbling in art, join in on the ‘Paint our River’ workshops held in the adjacent picnic area with local artist Pamela Fairburn.

The ‘Food and Wine by the River’ event is held in partnership with Lane Cove Council and proudly sponsored by Orange City Council.

Entry to the event is free, and you can purchase food and wine-tastings on the day.

You will be able to purchase wine tastings on the day from our wine stallholders, for $4 per half glass (60 ml) or $8 per full glass (120 ml). Wine glasses are also available for purchase from our stallholders at $5 per glass, which can be re-used for wine tastings throughout the day.

Please note that this is a fully licensed event with no BYO or glass.

Stories of Orange

Philip Shaw from Philip Shaw Wines

Philip Shaw is recognised as one of the world’s leading winemakers, and is the former Head of Production / Winemaking for Rosemount and Southcorp Wines. Philip established his own vineyard in the Orange region in 1989. He searched Australia for years to find the best site in an emerging wine-growing region to make exceptional wines with flavour and finesse. The opportunity to pioneer and champion the region greatly appealed to Philip, and his belief in the Orange wine-growing region has been backed by numerous international awards.

Justin Jarrett from See Saw Wines

A recognised pioneer of the Orange region’s viticulture industry, Justin is the proud owner of See Saw Wine – one of the region’s most successful biodynamic vineyards. He believes the phenomenal and growing success of Orange as an emerging food and wine destination has been in its promotion through events such as the Orange Wine Festival and Orange F.O.O.D Week. “Orange is a cosmopolitan region. If we all still can stick to improving our quality, delivering the truth of it, and working together the region will continue to leap ahead.”

Charlie Svenson from De Salis Wines

Charlie’s love for wine meant he was habitually bending the ears of his friends about his passion – yet the move to winemaking seemed for Charlie, beyond him. “I was the beer brewer for the parties on campus, but craving to dabble in winemaking. When I turned 40, my mates gave me a barrel and told me to get on with it – make wine – they were sick of hearing about my viniferous dreams. We see ourselves as minimalist winemakers at De Salis – like a great chef who will choose the best produce in season and artistically develops the flavour, enhancing but not changing its uniqueness and regionality.”
