Sydney’s only urban winery lays on long lunches
The suburb of St Peters in Sydney’s inner west is better known for aircraft noise than a noteworthy food and wine culture, but the laidback suburb next to boisterous Newtown is coming into its own. Precinct 75, a warehouse space in St Peters, is a creative zone divided into suites. It houses a cafe, bakery, gym, microbrewery, hair studios and small businesses. On a recent Sunday, 40 people went looking for suite 6.1, where Urban Winery owner Alex Retief has started hosting a series of chef lunches.
