You might not be able to jet off on an Italian holiday any time soon. But a luxurious aperitivo session starring top Aussie produce, a few local culinary heroes and stunning ocean vistas — well, that's yours for the taking.

This summer, a lineup of guest chefs, bartenders and other industry legends will descend upon the Icebergs Terrace for brand-new event series, An Australian Aperitivo. Each will feature a new menu of seasonal sips, along with snacks cooked over wood and coals — all heroing the best local flavours and some leading Aussie talent, across two ticketed sessions (2–4pm and 5–7pm).

The fun kicks off on Sunday, February 21, when Anthony Puharich (Victor Churchill, Vic's Meat), Morgan McGlone (chef-owner of Belles Hot Chicken) and Andrew Guard (Andrew Guard Wine Imports) head up the first of these oceanside affairs. Then, on Sunday, February 28, it's Momofuku Seiōbo's Paul Carmichael, restaurateur Anton Forte (Alberto's Lounge, Restaurant Hubert, Shady Pines Saloon, The Baxter Inn) and Mike Bennie (P&V Wine & Liquor Merchants) along for the ride.

Secure your spot by grabbing a $50 ticket online, the cost of which will then come off your final bill on the day.
