There’s a one day Prosecco festival coming to South Wharf

Prosecco: refreshing, versatile, bubbly. It's a winning combo, if you ask us. Now Melburnians will soon be able to indulge their love of the Italian white wine at the Prosecco Festival this February.

On Sunday February 25, Cargo Hall at South Wharf will be positively effervescent as it fills with Prosecco lovers. Sample some 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 cheese, oysters and caviar or hear from serious Prosecco enthusiast Melissa Brauer. Sample drops from the likes of Vino Bambino, Wines of the King Valley, Box Grove Vineyard 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. Your ticket (available online for $50) includes a crystal Plumm glass and a goodie bag. Put it in your calendar and prepare yourself for a day of fizz.
