It was a rainy Thursday night but it was also pouring wines and good times at the Aperitivo at the Apartment — already on its 7th installment!
What started out as a test idea to introduce a piece of Italian lifestyle in Manila has now become a well-attended event in the metro. You just can’t say no to a night celebrating some of the best Italian wine, delicious antipasti, and live music sets from local and international artists, right?
Started by Italians, who have found a home in Manila, Fabio Urbisaglia and Donatello Montrone, the Aperitivo has been gathering a growing crowd event after event. In addition to their classic list of wines that includes Elfo Rosso Negroamaro, Elfo Bianco Chardonnay, and Elfo Rosato Negroamaro, the guys have also started introducing Laicale Chardonnay and Terragnolo Negroamaro, both of which are barrique wines, and a sparkling wine called Muller Thurgau Sicilia.
Donatello still heads the kitchen, whipping up an antipasti feast that is truly delizioso!
This time, guests enjoyed cold cuts and cheese, penne con pesto siciliano, rigatoni tartufo e pancetta, frittata, and the irresistible porchetta.
The Apartment’s relaxed and cozy vibe already sets the tone of the night but add in some soulful beats and the whole atmosphere turns up a notch. Jason Sung opened the night and DJ Michael Berth segued into some sexy Latino tunes.
If you think you missed out on all the fun, no need to worry. The guys behind Aperitivo is already cooking up the next installment on July 19! It’s going to be another fun night of good food and wine, great company, and an awesome time as Marco Mei, a Taiwan-based Italian DJ, and Beach Please of Time Manila will be on the music deck. And word is, the Italian Ambassador is gracing the event. Ci vediamo!
