Stoneleigh Metro, an urban oasis bar created by Marlborough wine brand Stoneleigh, is giving Sydney locals a unique experience in the heart of the city.
From Thursday 9th October, Stoneleigh invites locals to enjoy a ‘Wonder of Nature’ at Metro St James as the brand brings to life the essence of the Marlborough region. Visitors can enjoy a range of Stoneleigh wines alongside delicious canapés, while listening to live music or joining a unique Cellar Door experience until 31st January, 2015.
Stoneleigh winemaker, Jamie Marfell, invites visitors to share a glass of Stoneleigh Marlborough wine with friends in this urban oasis. “Stoneleigh wines are created by a small wonder of nature; the stones in our vineyard retain the heat from the sun and spend their nights warming the vines creating our vibrant wines.”
“Stoneleigh Metro offers locals the experience to feel closer to nature, to relax in a sanctuary in the heart of the city whilst tantalising their taste buds with canapés matched to Stoneleigh wines,” he added.
Created by Australian stylist and Style Director at large of Belle Magazine, Steve Cordony, the ‘Wonder of Nature’ experience will be full of lush flora, hanging gardens and Stoneleigh’s iconic sunstones; for locals to indulge in an urban sanctuary in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.
On designing the Stoneleigh Metro, Steve Cordony explains: “Working with nature has always been a passion of mine and I loved the challenge of capturing New Zealand’s natural beauty. Stoneleigh Metro offers Australians an environment where they can escape the daily grind and relax while enjoying a glass of wine. With summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect venue to appreciate nature.”
Celebrated floral sculptor, Tracey Deep, will create an original suspended garden in this urban oasis, to capture the luscious surroundings of the Marlborough region.
In addition to enjoying Stoneleigh wines, visitors can book one of three unique Stoneleigh Cellar Door experiences.
