Australian Restaurant Launches ‘Wine Socie-tea’ Experience

Australia’s first 100% plant-based restaurant is launching a creative world’s first – a Tea & Wine pairing afternoon tea

Launching this September, Alibi Bar & Kitchen in Ovolo Woolloomooloo, Sydney (what a name) is putting a unique edge to the usual afternoon tea with a new ‘Wine Socie-tea’ experience.

Australia’s first 100% plant-based hotel bar and restaurant, Alibi Bar & Kitchen brings an artistic edge to the vegan dining scene. The new afternoon tea is no different – offering diners the chance to try a seriously sip-worthy twist on tradition.

Taking place every Saturday and Sunday across September, Pernod Ricard Winemakers has partnered with Alibi Bar & Kitchen’s Head Chef Jordan Brogan, and Ovolo Woolloomooloo Head Pastry Chef Lei Shang to create this luxuriously chic new offering.


In line with Pernod Ricard’s September rollout of their latest innovation Tea & Wine, the team at Alibi will be serving up this never-before-seen marriage of two of the world’s most ancient ingredients to forge tea infused wine – Tea & Wine.

The two drops include a chardonnay infused with chamomile, and a cabernet infused with chai spices. Guests can choose from a single glass upon arrival, or a more indulgent free-flowing experience.

The food looks set to be just as innovative. Guests can devour wholly plant-based sweets treats and savoury feats, which celebrate local and seasonal Australian produce and complement the Tea & Wine pairings.

The spread is set to include mixed berry cheesecake, cardamom cashew cream, and chocolate domes. On the savoury side, expect a walnut terrine; delicate rolled cucumber; or whipped macadamia mini garden.
