what's on


22 Aug: Spanish Fiesta -19 September 2019

A mix made in heaven, Spanish food and Spanish wine. Some of my fondest memories of travelling through Spain involve regional ingredients paired beautifully with local wines. Take the guess work out and let our sommelier in chief, Emma and our chefs Nathan and Ben take you on a journey from Andalusia to Galicia, Catalonia to the Astorias Date: 19/09/2019 Tickets: $120 per person Time: 7:00 PM

18 Jul: Hearty Reds – 15 August 2019

Cold nights, hearty food, hearty wines. Need I say much more? Hearty reds is a crowd favourite.

17 Jul: “POSTPONED” International Beer Dinner

Hot on the heels of our local beer night, we are heading further afield with an international lineup. Like a German Weiss beer? It might be there. Love some Canadian craft time. It's a possibility.

26 Jun: Bastille Day – 13 July 2019

Don your Beret, dig out your striped pullover and glue on your fake 'tache, because it's Bastille Day. One of the most enjoyable days on the calendar of events, Bastille day celebrates all things French. 5 delectable courses and canapes on arrival paired with some fabulous French varietals. Organise a group or come as a couple, it's up to you, but get your bookings sorted as we are limited to 60 and it will sell out. Date: 13/07/2019 Tickets: $120 per person Time: 7pm

26 Apr: Local Beer Dinner – 2019

8 beers, 8 courses, mid winter. Sound alright? A great excuse to get your mates together, book a table and try some of the best that the Peninsula has to offer. Our friends from Hickinbotham, Jetty Road, Red Hill and Mornington Breweries have all jumped on board and are frothing (pun intended) to showcase their finest. Last years was an absolute blast, so we are tweaking it a little and going again. Nathan and Em are already working on their menu, so book now. Date: 15/06/2019 Tickets: $100 per person Time: 6:30 pm
mexican fiesta party

03 Apr: Mexican Fiesta

Alright, so this one is a bit left field, but why not have some fun with it? And, who doesn't love Mexican food? There will be a bit of cheating going on here, as it won't strictly be Mexican wine, but rather a mix of the best that Central and South America has to offer. And it won't just be Mendoza. Once again, the chefs will be doing their best to ensure that the food and wine is paired seamlessly and Emma will be searching far and wide to find the best examples from the region. Tickets are limited to 60, so get in quick. Date: 30/05/2019 Tickets: $120pp Time: 7pm

01 Mar: Greece Part 2

We all know just how good the food of Greece has always been, but was anyone else as surprised as we were by the quality of wines served up at the last Greek dinner? We were so taken by the standard that we have had them on the list at Volpino ever since. Emma has been busy upping her knowledge of the varieties, ready to drop some more surprises, whilst the chefs have been playing with all things Grecian in preparation for round 2.


01 Mar: Italy vs Australia

And we’re back for 2019. Our first wine dinner is a slight jig on our standard. Rather than focussing on a single country or region, it will be a comparative affair. Italy versus Australia. Not a battle per se, but rather a night of friendly competition and comparison. How does a Sangiovese from the King valley compare to it’s Tuscan rival? And how does the food compliment those varietals? Set across five courses, created and prepared by our chefs Nathan and Emily with matching wines from our Somm-in- Chief, Emma Mordue.


05 Feb: Valentines Day Dinner

South Beach will be offering a Five Course Set menu for Valentine’s Day. The menu will be a showcase all of the beautiful seafood that the Peninsula and Australia have to offer.
(A vegetarian menu will also be available)


21 Sep: Champagne & Sparkling Wines of the World

For something different we will be hosting a cocktail style function celebrating all things bubbles. A free roaming affair on a weekend evening. Come along and enjoy the start of the festive season in a very different format. Emma, Nathan and Matt have worked hard to come up with some great matches for this one. Don’t miss out!
