Countries such as Italy, Georgia, and Greece have been using natural wine practices for hundreds of years. In Australia, however, the movement toward natural and minimal-intervention wine has only been on the fringes of drinking culture.

Being held from midday till 5pm Saturday 23 November at The Sun Bistro, the Conscious Wine Celebration gives locals the chance to meet with seven wine producers and try new and interesting styles of Australian wine.

‘We want to showcase what’s available now in Australia’ said Julz Recsei from The Sun Bottlo. ‘Wines grown to suit Australian conditions. A lot of them are dry grown; they don’t need much water for irrigation if any at all. They are made by people, not huge factories. The grapes are predominantly hand picked, the wine is not filtered, fined, or temperature controlled and there are minimal or no preservatives’.

Whistler Wines from the Barossa Valley, Witches Falls from Mount Tambourine and the Granite Belt, Unico Zelo from the Adelaide Hills, Marions Vineyard from Tamar River Valley, Tasmania, Ricca Terra from Riverland South Australia, and Jilly Wines from Clunes will be among the winemakers sharing their produce and stories on November 23. 

Local food, gin, and beer producers will be a part of the celebration. The event is family friendly with live entertainment. Tickets include a return ride on the Byron Solar Train.

More infoSaturday 23 November midday – 5pm Sun Bistro Tickets $32 which includes booking fee, five conscious wine tasting samples, live entertainment and a return trip on the Byron Solar Train.

Family-friendly event with children 12 and under free.  Tickets www.thesunbistro.com or at The Sun Bottlo
