Melbourne's one-day Prosecco festival is back and it’s coming to Northcote this summer
Prosecco: refreshing, versatile, bubbly. It's a winning combo if you ask us. Now, after a standout debut in 2018, Melburnians will once again be able to indulge their love of the Italian white wine at the Prosecco Festival.
On Saturday, February 23, Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre will be positively effervescent as it fills with Prosecco lovers. Sample over 40 of the world’s best tasting tipples, talk to the men and women behind the wine and learn what foods pair best with different 'seccos.
Pair your Prosecco with classic Italian delicacies like pizza, pasta, arancini, antipasto and cheese platters, gelato, cannoli and more from the likes of 400 Gradi, Milk the Cow, Gelato papa, Eat Cannoli, Arancini Art and Yarra Valley Caviar. You can even try the Meat Room's salami made with Prosecco.
Sample drops from the likes of Wines of the King Valley, Box Grove Vineyard, Santa & D’Sas, Symphonia Wines, Regina Vino, Enoteca Sileno and Politini Wines – and if you like what you taste, you can even buy a bottle (or two) to take home.
The day will be divided into two four-hour sessions, one from 11am-3pm and one from 4-8pm. The regular ticket (available online for $50) includes Plumm tasting glass, Prosecco tastings, and reusable tote bag.
If you’re keen on a splurge, the VIP tickets are available online for $100 and include entry to a Prosecco masterclass where guests will taste four different Prosecco styles paired with antipasto snacks.
Put it in your calendar and prepare yourself for a day of fizz.
