Need a festival-style-prosecco-fix while you’re in Melbourne?
Yes, of course you do.
And you’ll need that prosecco fix in the form of prosecco-infused gelato, prosecco-infused salami, prosecco-flavoured cannoli and, not forgetting the fine liquid form itself; straight prosecco.
The too-good-to-be-true Prosecco Festival will be gracing Melbourne’s Northcote Townhall on Saturday 29 of February after two stellar sell-out seasons, providing the sparkling-loving folk with the chance to meet the growers, winemakers and importers all whilst sampling 40 sensational drops and their more-ish counterparts.
Let’s start with the star of the show, prosecco. Australia’s finest sips including Dal Zotto, Brown Brothers, Pizzini Wines, Box Grove Vineyard, Vinea Marson, Symphonia, Mitchelton, Cloak & Dagger, Sam Miranda Wines, See-Saw Wines, Tar & Roses and Trentham Estate will all be present, showcasing their true sparkling masterpieces. And for those of us who show up to anything for the food, you won’t be disappointed.
The Italians know how to make great sparkling and they know mouthwatering food, so you can expect the best this Prosecco Festival! Think traditional Neapolitan pizza from award-winning 400 Gradi, authentic pasta, bite-sized arancini from Arancini Art, gelato with one special prosecco infused flavour from Zero Gradi, Yes Porketta and of course, cheese from That’s Amore Cheese! And to keep the theme flowing, prosecco salami from The Meat Room, prosecco-flavoured cannoli from Eat Cannoli and other surprises will be at the ready. Never fear, vegans and gluten-free prosecco lovers will also be catered for in the food department.
For the prosecco-connoisseurs who are craving more, VIP tickets are available for each session. This golden ticket will get you a 45-minute Masterclass with the Prosecco Queen and founder of The Prosecco Festival, Melissa Brauer, along with access to the VIP balcony with grazing table, prosecco from Australia’s first prosecco producer, Dal Zotto Wines and a Select Aperitivo Venetian Spritz experience, thanks to Alepat Taylor. The sprawling grazing station will be thanks to the legends at That’s Amore Cheese.
