Overlooking the Toowong Reach of the Brisbane River, the heritage-listed Regatta Hotel sits unperturbed by the hustle & bustle of Coronation Drive, looking elegantly classical. Every year, the hotel transforms into the site of a vineyard festival, presenting some of the finest wines from all over the world. This year, it’s happening again.
The Laneway Vineyard Festival will be held on the 20th-21st of May starting from 12:00 p.m. until late in the evening. The event will showcase 70 premium international and local wines. Gourmet food stalls will also be set up to offer perfect pairings for the various wines.
The culinary team at the Boatshed Restaurant will be responsible for the delicious food at the event. Expect an eclectic mix of delectable delights, such as wood-fired pizzas, freshly shucked oysters, and cannoli. Some premium wine brands at the event are Penfolds, Robert Channon, Moet, Craggy Range, and Shaw & Smith.
The Walrus Club will be playing some great music along with other acoustic musicians and DJ’s.
Event-goers can get the $9 tokens which will entitle them to one glass of wine and one a pairing portion of food. Those who wish to participate in the wine-tasting can get a wine passport for $30.
So when you see the fairy light canopy at the Regatta Hotel, take it as a sign that the Festival’s about to happen. You wouldn’t want to miss it.
