Prosecco producers from Italy and Australia will combine when the Prosecco Festival returns for a third straight year in February, 2020.
Prosecco-lovers will flock to Northcote Town Hall on February 29 to meet the growers, winemakers and importers, and taste some of the best prosecco available in Australia today, along some Italian cuisine.
There will be over 40 different proseccos from Italy and Australia to try, along with VIP tickets that will get you a 45-minute masterclass along with access to the VIP balcony and experiences.
Festival-goers can indulge in a taste of Italy from the likes of Tenuta 2 Castelli, Col Del
Lupo, Silvano Follador, Borgo Molino, Carpene Malvolti, Casa Canavel, Bottega,
Rigoni, Cester Camillo and Calneggia.
Some of Australia’s finest examples, including Dal Zotto, Brown Brothers, Pizzini Wines, Box Grove Vineyard, Vinea Marson, Symphonia, Mitchelton, Cloak & Dagger, Sam Miranda Wines, See Saw Wines Tar and Roses and Trentham Estate will also be on taste.
Food offerings will include Neapolitan-style pizza from 400 Gradi, bite-sized arancini from Arancini Art, prosecco salami from The Meat Room, prosecco-infused gelato from Zero Gradi and prosecco-flavoured cannoli from Eat Cannoli – with plenty of gluten free and vegan options.
