Rootstock Sydney the sustainable and artisan food, wine and cultural festival returns to Carriageworks for the weekend of 26th and 27th of November 2016.

The first Rootstock Sydney event brought over 3,500 wine and food lovers to Leichardt’s Italian Forum for Australia’s first celebration of natural wine and artisan produce. In 2014 Rootstock Sydney moved to its current home, Carriageworks Sydney, and hosted 13,500 people for Australia’s largest food, wine and arts event of its kind. In 2015 the program expanded, and we welcomed even more winemakers, farmers, chefs and producers and included one of Australia’s largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander installations on indigenous produce and farming.

Rootstock Sydney’s focus is to promote sustainable farming in food and wine production and little/no additions in winemaking. Rootstock Sydney is a Not For Profit organization and event.

Building upon the enormous success of the past two years, Rootstock Sydney 2016 promises to be the most anticipated food and wine festival in the country. This is the only event of its kind – fun, informative, a touch wild, with a focus on organic, biodynamic and natural growing and the beautiful produce that results.

Carriageworks Director Lisa Havilah said: “We’re excited to present the return of Rootstock Sydney at Carriageworks for its third year. This world-class event is an opportunity for visitors to engage first-hand with some of the best chefs and creative leaders in the food and wine industry, from around the country.”
