Sydney Festival’s Meriton Festival Village is the ultimate oasis of musical and theatrical delights, along with plenty of delicious eats, all in the heart of the city at Hyde Park. It’s the perfect place to kick back in the afternoons or kick on into the warm summer nights.
A great selection of food and beverages are available from 12pm and the licensed bars are open from 4pm. Food and beverages purchased at the Festival Village can be consumed while watching a musical or theatrical production.
On Friday 22 January 2016, I went to watch the theatrical production, Songs of the Fallen, and sampled a number of the James Estate wines at the James Estate Wine bar at the Meriton Festival Village.
Songs of the Fallen is a cabaret musical about the life of Marie Duplessis, the peasant-girl-turned-courtesan and La Traviata muse, who died at 23 from consumption.
James Estate wines are wines that are built on a foundation of quality, experience and a sense of “place” that encapsulates the lifestyle and creative spirit of the Hunter Valley.
James Estate grapes are grown in the region and made and bottled onsite. This means every part of the process is in the hands of our highly experienced and innovative winemakers.
James Estate spreads across two sites in the Hunter Valley – the Cellar Door in Pokolbin and Vineyard in Baerami, with plantings dating back to 1968.
