new pop-up Semillon &

A Oyster Bar is the highlight

feature at this year’s Uncorked

Avalon Festival at Dunbar Park

on Sunday April 22.

The Festival will bring

together 25 wineries from

the Hunter Valley, providing

a taste of what’s to come at

this year’s Hunter Valley

Food & Wine Festival in May

and June.

The pop-up bar will be

hosted by four of the region’s

leading winemakers and

vignerons who will showcase

Semillon matched with

freshly shucked oysters.

The master classes by

Mount Pleasant Wines,

McLeish Estate Wines,

Tamburlaine Organic Wines

and Tulloch Wines run for

45 minutes and cost $45 per

person (includes a souvenir

Riedel glass, a flight of

Hunter Valley Semillon and

half a dozen oysters).

But you’d better be quick

– each supplier has 20 spots

only (total 80), so be sure to

book in advance.

Hunter Valley region

restaurants and producers

include Bar Coco, Choux

Patisserie, Hunter Valley

Cheese Company, Il

Cacciatore, Inbocca, Miss

Mables, Pimp My Chimney,

Pukara Estate, Rockin

Oysters and The Cellar


Other wineries showcasing

include Allandale, Briar

Ridge, Brokenwood and

Hungerford Hill.

The funky sounds of

Soul Shack Entertainment

will keep guests dancing

throughout the day, which

kicks off at 10.30am and

runs through 5pm.

If you want to skip the

line, a festival glass and

four tasting vouchers can

be purchased online for $26

(Glasses can be purchased on

the day for $10; wine tasting

vouchers $4.)

Oysters will be supplied

by renowned Port Macquarie

who have built a solid

reputation for producing

high-quality, full-bodied

Sydney Rock variety oysters.

PS: Look out for Max, Luke

and the crew from Avalon’s

Oceana Traders who will be

cooking their acclaimed fish

tacos plus Tiger prawns.
