We’re in the business of making memories, so to celebrate the launch of our own civil matrimony (venue + caterer) – we’ve decided to kick-start our partnership with a true celebration for Newcastle Food Month. And so, by the power vested in us and without further ado we now announce the … RAVELLA X ALFIE’S PERFECT MATCH 2024.

We’re thrilled to invite you to join us on our big day as we begin our courtship and celebrate some of the Hunter Region’s finest and the very best Newcastle has to offer. It’s about local food, local wine and local fun whilst we welcome you as the first guests to Ravella (formerly 48 Watt Street) – where we hope you’ll enjoy the first of many amazing experiences.

To help us celebrate we’re excited to welcome Usher Tinkler, Lisa McGuigan and Liz Silkman to join us – not only are they our valued friends, but you might recognise them as some of the most talented and respected Hunter winemakers from Usher Tinkler Wines, Lisa McGuigan Wines and First Creek Wines respectively. Annnnd.. in the spirit of turning up the fun – YOU will vote on which wine will be crowned the Inaugural Ravella x Alfie’s Perfect Match. Each course of Alfie’s Italian feast will be matched with wines from our winemakers and served in disguise.

In a homage to the beloved household game show of the 80s, the winemakers will vie for our attention, questions will be asked and compatibility scores will be calculated – until the Perfect Match is revealed! There’ll be canapes, antipasti, primi, pasta and secondi courses – and of course – dolce! Featuring beautiful food, stunning wine and live music, great memories are a certainty. So gather some old friends and plan on making some new ones and book your tickets pronto!

Will it be love at first sip? We can’t wait to find out.

Inclusions (but certainly not limited to):

  • Six-course shared Italian feast by Alfie’s Head Chef, Rafael Tonon in the exquisite Main Hall at Ravella Newcastle (formerly 48 Watt Street)
  • (Perfect) Matching Wines from some of the Hunter’s Finest Winemakers – Usher Tinkler, Lisa McGuigan & Liz Silkman (First Creek Wines)
