2017 Weekend Fit for a King Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th June
According to the Dal Zotto family, a generous dose of family and friends, a finely crafted drop of wine, and a few plates of delicious homemade food are all you need to have a good time.
VINO, PASTA E BASTA 2017
‘Mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare!’ or in English ‘eat to live and not live to eat!’
This Queen’s Birthday long weekend escape the doldrums of city life and travel to Italy without stepping foot out of Victoria. Dal Zotto Wines will be hosting, over the long weekend, ‘Vino, Pasta e Basta’ or in English ‘Wine? Pasta? Enough!’ as part of the King Valley’s Weekend Fit for a King celebrations.
The Dal Zotto winery will be transformed into its own ‘little Italy in Whitfield’ complete with Italian-style events. Sip on new-release wines, feast on hand made pasta and let the kids play until they drop! : Loopy the Clown will be back to make sure all the parents can relax and enjoy a vino or two. There will a jumping castle, and a kid’s corner with face painting and craft activities where the kids can decorate their own teddy bear.
Prepare your senses for a traditional Italian celebration or ‘celebrazione’.
The annual event kicks off with new release wines such as the 2015 Insieme, 2014 Nebbiolo and the return of Dal Zotto’s L’Immigrante Barbera – 2013 L’Immigrante Barbera.
