Sheraton lures new crowd with sunset wine and cheese

An iconic Sydney hotel renowned for its decadent high teas has extended its afternoon offering to include sundowners paired with “mouthwatering” nibbles and “artisanal” cheeses.

The lobby of the Gallery at Sheraton on the Park will transform in the gloaming hour each evening into an intimate wine bar.

Billed as the city’s newest after-work drinks destination, the Gallery will be offering a collection of exclusive fine wines from around the world, paired with dishes and cheeses to compliment the flavours.

Open from 5pm Tuesday to Friday, the Gallery Wine Room is celebrating its launch by showcasing the best of Adelaide’s The Lane Vineyard alongside a “gourmet grazing table” including some of the nation’s best cheeses, for $25.

Featured wines will include The Lane Block 10 Sauvignon Blanc, Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir and Block 14 Basket Press Shiraz.

The Lane’s national sales & marketing manager Ben Tolstoshev will also host a tasting event on August 23 featuring six of the winery’s most outstanding vintages.

Sheraton on the Park is the only five star hotel on Hyde Park and has long set the benchmark for classic hotels in Sydney.

A $40million overhaul of its 558 guestrooms and Sheraton Club Lounge saw the hotel awarded Best Redeveloped/Refurbished Hotel in last month’s TAA NSW Awards for Excellence.

It has won multiple awards over the last decade for the quality of its events spaces, including the Best Meeting & Events Venue in the 2016 AHA National Awards for Excellence and Conference Hotel of the Year in the 2016 TAA NSW Awards for Excellence.
