Yagan Square to host popular winter food and wine festival
City Wine will celebrate its sixth anniversary with a move to the new Yagan Square in the heart of Perth.
Dozens of WA's leading boutique wineries, breweries and cideries, along with cocktails and delicious food, will be part of the celebration.
The winter wine festival, celebrated over two days on Friday, June 7 from 4pm to 10pm and Saturday, June 8 from 2pm to 9pm, will provide a great opportunity to taste some of WA's top red wines, many of which are due to be released around the time of City Wine.
City Wine is the perfect event at which to relax with friends in a great festive atmosphere.
Event director, Richard Campbell said moving the event to Yagan Square enabled the whole area to be undercover. He said there would be plenty of heaters to keep visitors snug as well as lots of winter warming food and drinks.
Cool music from DJ VERT, playing from 4pm to 7pm on Friday and from 2pm to 7pm on Saturday and DJ James Yelland playing from 7pm to 10pm on Friday and from 5.30pm to 9pm on Saturday would help create a party atmosphere.
The ever popular City Wine is moving from the Cultural Centre to Perth's new Yagan Square.
Mr Campbell said the move to Yagan Square made it even easier for workers in the city to come along after work on Friday and meet up with friends and colleagues to taste something new or catch up with old favourites.
There will be plenty of seating, with space for friends to gather and share a drink and have some food.
Yagan Square is also perfectly connected to public transport, which makes it ideal for people to pop into the City on Saturday and share a glass or two of wine with friends without having to worry about driving.
Perth's best street food goes with great beer, wine and cider at City Wine.
On the Friday, City Wine is open from 4pm to 10pm and on Saturday from 2pm to 9pm.
Tickets are available online for $27 and at the gate for $30.
The entry fee includes a souvenir glass and complimentary wine tastings and use of a wine locker.
Mr Campbell said visitors to City Wine were encouraged to explore the wide range of boutique products on offer and then support the local industry by buying a glass of wine or taking home a bottle or two to top up their wine cellars for winter.
