SYDNEY BEER AND WINE TOUR
On this tour of Sydney’s breweries, you visit two awesome breweries and have a bonus wine tasting session at Australia’s first Urban Winery. Which breweries we visit on the day does change – not all places are open every day and these beer tours are all about timing and providing a good mix of places, people, and beers (and wine!).
Urban Winery Sydney is a fully-functioning, city-based commercial winery, with a cellar door located in the heart of Sydney. It is a commercial winery that processes at least 50 tonnes of grapes annually. Taste directly from the barrel, learn all about making wine in town, and enjoy as we sit back and explore their range.
Number of guests per tour – This brewery and winery tour of Sydney accommodates a minimum of two and a maximum of 10 guests (get in touch for information on larger group sizes). Your order will be confirmed once we have filled two seats on the tour.
WHERE YOU WILL GO
- URBAN WINERY SYDNEY
- Australia’s first truly Urban Winery, everything from crushing and fermenting, to barreling and bottling – it all happens in the St. Peters location. The city heart of the “A. Retief” wine label, and bringing a little of Bordeaux to Sydney, Urban Winery uses the finest NSW Cold Climate grapes to create wines with rustic distinction.
- WILLIE THE BOATMAN
- Started in 2012, Willie the Boatman beers are brewed on ex-dairy equiptment, repurposed for brewing the delicious amber liquid known as beer! Pat, Nick, Joel and the gang at Willie’s do a fantastic job of creating beers with plenty of character (read; flavour)!
- ROCKS BREWING COMPANY
- Led by fifth and sixth generation convict descendants, the guys behind The Rocks Brewing Company have thrown their all into setting up one of the most advanced breweries in town. Explore the brewhouse and get up close to their brewing equipment as you sample beers straight from the tank.
*SOMETIMES THINGS CHANGE – Because our Sydney tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. And sometimes we just know about beer goings on around town that are worth checking out, so we may change some parts of our tours. Whilst these changes are rare, we do reserve the right to make them. If you do have a MUST-SEE beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
