Get ready Melbourne, because a gourmet Italiano adventure awaits! The Italian Wine + Food Festival is coming to our gorgeous city this June and is set to capture the full experience of the Italian lifestyle.
Here you’ll meet producers, talk to experts, and watch live cooking demonstrations, all paying homage to tradition and showcasing true Italian innovation. There’ll be over 200 wines to taste, wine masterclasses, pop up restaurants, a wine garden and even an Italian Marketplace, ready for you to shop-til-you-drop. The festival needs to go to the top of your list for things to do in Melbourne this Winter.
The festival will feature some of Melbourne’s top Italian chefs including Rosa Mitchell (Rosa’s Canteen), Johnny di Francesco (400 Gradi), Carmine Costantini (Pasta Adagio) plus Andrea Papadakis and Alberto Fava (Tipo 00).
Feast on pizza, pasta and Italian snacks from some our cities best restaurants. These include 400 Gradi, Caterina’s Cucina e Bar, Trattoria Emilia, Bar Idda, Pasta Classica, La Bonta, Small Axe, Pasta Adagio and Vaporetto.
The festival offers food and drink, entertainment and information to suit everyone from spaghetti-loving kids to the most engaged Italian-speaking wine lover.
My tip is to head to the Smeg Main Stage for delicious cooking demonstrations!
