Christmas in July

We’ve decided that one Christmas just isn’t enough!
Because of this we have created some brilliant packages to celebrate a cold, Aussie winter in style.

Leave all the planning to us and pick one of our discounted Christmas in July packages.
Choose from a delicious sit down menu, a casual cocktail party or even an intimate blending session with our winemaker Alex Retief.
So gather your colleagues and beg your boss, because why have one work Christmas party a year when you can have two!

Mulled Wine

As we draw into the colder months of Winter, here at Urban Winery Sydney we are now offering a
beautifully spiced Mulled Wine available in our Wine Bar every Thursday through til Sunday starting the 15th of June!

“The cold weather snap has suddenly hit and it actually has some benefit- now it is Mulled Wine Season!

Mulled wine- or Gluhwein is a hot, spiced wine originating in the alps of Europe and finding a special place in the hearts of cold Sydney-siders.

At Urban Winery Sydney the recipe we have honed over the years is heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg with orange and honey in the mix- along with a combination of other delicious spices!

Come in, try a panikan of our Mulled Wine and see for yourself!”

~ Alex Retief, Winemaker ~

If you want to dabble in creating your own Mulled Wine at home, our winemaker has been kind enough to share his secret Urban Winery Sydney recipe:

Makes 1 bottle of delicious UWS Mulled Wine

1 Nutmeg – Quartered

1 tablespoon of cardamom pods – crushed

3 whole cloves

1 whole star anise

1 stick of cinnamon – halved

1 orange

Generous squeeze of honey

A bottle of a full-bodied, slightly sweeter red, like the A.Retief Merlot

  1. Put all your spices and your bottle of wine into a large saucepan
  2. Halve the orange and squeeze the juice into the wine mixture and throw in the rest once all juices have been squeezed out
  3. Add a generous squeeze of honey to taste
  4. Put your saucepan over the stove and slowly bring to a gentle simmer until you can smell the delicious spices
  5. Once your mulled wine has warmed all the way through, have a taste, and if you prefer it a tad sweeter add either more honey or orange juice to your liking
  6. Once hot and sweet enough, ladle into a mug and enjoy your mulled wine with friends and family
