Welcome to paradise!

Wine Island is a must-visit destination for anyone who loves wine, great food and a relaxing day out in the middle of Sydney harbour. 

Held over 3 days from Friday 10 Nov – Sunday 12 Nov, 2017 on Clark Island, this is the place where you can feel like you’re leaving the city while entering the very heart of it. Your holiday begins aboard the Bubbles Boats with a glass of sparkling for the short journey over to the island. Once ashore, you’ll sip your way through a selection of over 100 new wave and classic wines.

Island food is curated by award-winning chef, Warren Turnbull (Banc, Assiette and Chur). Warren has created a bespoke island menu to match to our island wines such as Hawaiian poke, Mexican tacos, cheese, oysters and some lamb on the spit to whet your appetite. 

The popular Island Masterclasses will return with Wine Selectors bringing sweet dreams to life in the form of Dessert Island (dessert wines matched to delicious sweets). They will also be shaking their tail feather with you at the Silent Disco Drops (matching music to wine – last year’s smash hit) – to find out more head to the Masterclass page.

No journey to Wine Island is complete without visiting The Cracka Wines ‘Club House’ at the top of the island, where you’ll be able to enjoy a selection of amazing wines while lounging on day beds beside the Wine Spa or quenching your thirst for knowledge in their Wine Library.

Visit the TICKETS page for more information on inclusions and ticket types. Come join us for 3 days full of great food and amazing wines in one of the best locations in Sydney!
