MIXING WINE AND WATER

Wine beside the sea
The Mudgee Wine Festival came to Sydney yesterday.
Pirrama Park. at the northern tip of the suburb of Pyrmont, is a 10 minute bus ride from Sydney's central business district (Bus route 443).
On a day like yesterday
- when the late autumn sun shone from a cloudless sky and the temperature reached 19 degrees C -
what better to do at Pirrama than to sit beside the sea with a glass of wine?
The Mudgee Wine Festival was in full swing, offering choices from stalls representing 30 wineries. Mudgee
is a New South Wales tourist destination in its own right, but yesterday Mudgee came to town.
For anyone feeling hungry there were stalls offering honey, olives, grass-fed beef and other regional foods.
Emphasising the Australianness of the event, entertainment was provided by a Korean magician and a bongo band.
It's hard to say how many people were there but it was probably well over a thousand.
