After a relocation from the inner west suburb of St Peters, Sydney’s first true urban winery – fittingly called Urban Winery Sydney – is creating and showcasing wines in the most unlikely of locations.

Winemaker Alex Retief is moving his winery lock, stock and barrel. If that doesn’t sound equal parts difficult and unusual enough, he’s relocating it next to the dance studio at Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter.
We have a huge year planned in Urban Winery Sydney and hope you can all be part of it in some form. Most importantly, this vintage is shaping up to be a pretty excellent year.
