Sydney pop-up wine bars

Over the next few weeks Sydney’s historic precinct, The Rocks, will host a number of pop-up wine bars where wine-lovers can enjoy a glass (or two) from some of the country’s award-winning vineyards.

The Crave International Food Festival kicked off last week and as Sydney enjoys all things sweet and savoury in the culinary world, a celebration of local wine seems only fitting.
