APERITIVO HOUR IN THE DOLPHIN WINE ROOM

EVERY SUNDAY – THURSDAY, 5PM-7PM, $5-$7

Aperitivo Hour has been at the very heart of the Wine Room since the inception of the hotel just over a year ago. The concept has been based on Maurice’s experience and groundbreaking work at The Melbourne Wine Room in The George Hotel in Melbourne, which is to build a place of quality service, impeccable product and in as many words circle back to what ‘real hospitality’ is.

In its simplest form, the concept is very well priced drinks and delicious plates of super-value snacks from Sunday to Thursday, 5-7pm priced at a super-reasonable $5-7.

Executive Chef Monty Koludrovic and Wine Director James Hird have set out to create a space where, chefs who are friends, visiting winemakers or importers who are family, can drop by and taste with staff and customers alike. It is a meeting place, a place where friends and the wider community can come to catch up and engage in what they love with the creators of what they love.

The concept aims to be a place of creativity, providing access to some of Australia’s and the world’s most renowned chefs, wine makers and restaurateurs. Aperitivo Hour is about having a drink with friends and trying dishes from chefs and winemakers that ordinarily would be less accessible in a casual setting.

CAPITANO – CARLTON, MELBOURNE.

August 18th, 5-7pm

The super talented bunch of legends at Bar Liberty have just launched their new retro-styled Italian modernistic eatery in Carlton where it combines pizza, pasta and parmigiana ala Chef-owner Casey Wall’s Italian-American food upbringing. Natural Italian wine and mixed Italian classic drinks are the chosen refreshments. Expect the best!

Capitano has a strict policy of no imported rice, flour or tomatoes, and the flour in the pizza dough, comes from South Australia’s Laucke Flour Mills. Keeping it local where neccesary is key for the group, especially when it comes to their specialty bone-in veal parmigiana sourced from Meatsmith around the corner, this badboy is crumbed and flash-fried before being finished in the pizza oven and then topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella, scamorza and basil leaves. Ooof! Here’s to hoping for a snack sized version in The Dolphin Wine Room.

Darren Learney will be joined by fellow Capitano / Bar Liberty brethren Blake Giblet this upcoming Sunday 18th August in the gravel pit with Monty, James and Marie-Sophie serving up the snacks and sips straight from the Capitano ship.

Join us early from 5-7pm to avoid table disappointment!

Ochota Barrels, Taras Ochota

Basket Ranges, South Australia
Sunday 25th August.

We’ve got our good friend and ridiculously talented winemaker, Taras Ochota back in the building this upcoming Sunday 25th August, bringing with him a new batch of his ‘19 spring release of small-batch wines. If you’ve tasted his wines at our first Wet Dreams party, you’d know the bottles grow legs and run out the door looking for people to drink them.

The Ochota Barrels tale began on a surf trip, late 2000 along the Mexican west coast in a Volkswagen campervan. A final destination after traveling to some of the world’s most amazing wine and surf regions, Taras and Amber Ochota conceived the idea to make beautiful holistic wines back home in South Australia.

After a misspent youth playing a Rickenbacker bass in various punk bands, Taras became an Oenology graduate from Adelaide University, developing his craft in numerous vineyards and cellars around the world to then settle with Amber on 9.6 steep gorgeous acres tucked away, deep in the Basket Range of the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

We’ll have chef Tom Deadman and potentially another special guest dropping in to serve up some very special snack-plates as well as James and Marie wrangling a few drinks in mix. So, don’t sleep!

You know the drill, easy birds get the can of worms. Don’t get caught minesweeping other patron’s glasses for a taste of the good stuff. 5-7pm!
