Awaken your taste buds at Apericena.

From the Italian words “aperto” (open or begin) and “cena” (dinner), apericena (a-per-a-chain-a) is the tradition of enjoying a cocktail or glass of wine and a bite to eat as a prelude to dinner.

Our curated selection of boutique wines from around the world highlights some of the premier wine-growing regions.  Whether Europe, Africa, South America, Napa or Sonoma, our wine will transport you to the places where the vine has something truly interesting to say.  Complement your drink with something from our small plates menu, featuring flatbreads and charcuterie boards.

Bringing live entertainment, wine tasting events and a wide selection of cocktails and mixed drinks to the South Hills.
