Sydney Wineries 2002 Bud Burst Festival

When: 14th -29th September, 2002

Last year, the Sydney wineries held their inaugural Bud Burst festival. Because of the excellent reception of the event, held at Vicary's Winery - Luddenham, this year the Association has decided to extend the Bud Burst Festival over several weeks from 14th -29th September, 2002.

The festival will commence with a combined wineries event to be staged again at the Vicary's Winery, 1935 Northern Rd Luddenham on Sunday 15th September, 2002.

On display will be various wineries from the Sydney area including Gledswood, Tizzana, Mt Hunter, Vicary's, Camden Park, Nangarin Estate, Kirkham and others. At the event will also be supported by other producers, olive growers and craft stalls. The festival will also be supported by various councils of the region, MACROC, Hawkesbury Harvest and the University of Western Sydney. Along with the displays and tastings will be music by two bands, one playing Flaminco music in the winery whilst a Bush Band plays in Vicary's famous Woolshed. Lunch will be available in the Woolshed and amusement rides (Thomas the Tank Engine rides) will be running for the children.
