Enjoy an iconic WA sunset while tasting the best of WA’s wine, craft beers, ciders, spirits & food on the coast at Scarborough!
Sunset Wine and Brews – Held at the new Scarborough Beach Reserve on February 9 and 10 will feature 20 wineries, 10 breweries and cideries, local spirit makers and range of tapas foods.
Craft beer will assume a bigger role in what has been the traditional stronghold of WA wine producers at the annual Scarborough celebration which will now be called Sunset Wine & Brews.
Richard Campbell, Director of CMS Events, which operates the two-day festival said that while beer had always played an important part in the event, the explosion of craft beers and ciders in WA opened up a greater focus on brewing.
“There will still be a very strong emphasis on wine with around 20 wineries among the 40 exhibitors we’re expecting to participate, but this year we’re expecting around 10 breweries and cideries to join us,” Richard says.
“There will also be a number of local spirit makers and of course, a great range of tapas style food.”
Sunset Wine has been running since 2014 and this year the festival returns to its original home at the Scarborough Beach Reserve on the Esplanade at Scarborough, which has been unavailable for the past two years because of the area’s refurbishment.
Also new to Sunset Wine & Brews is the change to Perth local DJs playing new and old tunes, while still having some of the same features as previous years, the Sunset Balcony and Wine Locker.
“And, of course, visitors will be able to take advantage of those fantastic views of the Indian Ocean as the sun goes down,” Richard says.
The event will be open from
“It will be a great opportunity to gather with friends, listen to local Dj’s, sample beautiful WA boutique wines, beer, cider and spirits and watch the sun go down.
“There will be a fantastic range of both well-known and lesser known WA wines as well as craft beers and ciders that many people won’t be familiar with.”
As well as wines to try, visitors can buy a glass of wine to enjoy at the show or bottles to take home. A wine locker on site allows bottles of wine to be stored until it’s time to go home.
A range of food will be available including tapas, dumplings, baos and other festival food.
The popular Sunset Balcony will be back for 2019, providing lounges and high bars with uninterrupted views of the ocean and a great spot to do a bit of people watching.
