Part of the Summerset Arts Festival, the event will be held at Sunset Veranda on Scarborough Beach Reserve on January 30 and 31.

Managed by wine and food event group CMS Events, its director Richard Campbell said the event had grown in popularity and was a welcome addition to the Scarborough Beach festival.

Mr Campbell said the festival promoted West Australian wine with tapas style food from a selected range of street food vendors.

City of Stirling Mayor Giovanni Italiano said the festival had much to offer to visitors.

“You can take in a show or enjoy a drink and a bite to eat while taking in the spectacular ocean views as the sun magically sets over the ocean,” Cr Italiano said.

Patrons will be able to taste, buy by the glass or order something to be enjoyed later.

The festival will also feature craft beer and cider companies introduced in the line-up as part of more than 40 exhibitors on show.

Due to increased capacity and the previous two years selling out, Mr Campbell urged people to pre-purchase tickets. January
