Cel­e­brate ‘the sweet life’ at King Val­ley wine and food fes­ti­val

North East Tourist News - - WINE COUNTRY -

WINES of the King Val­ley will host the eter­nally pop­u­lar La Dolce Vita wine and food fes­ti­val this spring, Novem­ber 19-20.

Vis­i­tors are in­vited to pur­chase a ticket, which in­cludes a tast­ing glass to take home, and visit 11 par­tic­i­pat­ing winer­ies through­out the re­gion.

Winer­ies of­fer tast­ings of new re­lease and mu­seum re­lease wines, au­then­tic cui­sine pre­pared by Nonna or a renowned lo­cal chef, live mu­sic, rov­ing en­ter­tain­ers, com­pe­ti­tions, kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties, mas­ter­classes and more.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence life in the King Val­ley the way we know it – time with friends, fam­ily and great food, in a beau­ti­ful set­ting.

“The chance to dis­cover a new favourite wine is al­ways ex­cit­ing, too - here you get to speak to the per­son who grew the grapes and made the wine,” says Ali­son Lloyd, mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer for the group.

“It’s such a lovely day out; I highly rec­om­mend us­ing your ticket across both days and try­ing to visit ev­ery one of our eleven unique winer­ies.”

Par­tic­i­pat­ing winer­ies this year in­clude Brown Broth­ers, Sam Mi­randa, Merkel Wines, Sym­pho­nia, La Cantina, Dal Zotto, Dar­ling Es­tate, Pizzini, Poli­tini, Chris­mont and Francesco Wines.

The re­gion is well known for its Ital­ian va­ri­etal wines, such as pros­ecco, pinot gri­gio, arneis, san­giovese and neb­bi­olo.

The val­ley of­fers a great en­vi­ron­ment for grow­ing high qual­ity wine grapes, as well as an en­vi­able life­style en­joyed by the wine­mak­ing fam­i­lies.

Chil­dren are very wel­come, with a range of child-friendly foods and ac­tiv­i­ties such as gelato, face-paint­ing and bocce on the lawns.

Fes­ti­val tick­ets are $25 per per­son, valid both days of the fes­ti­val. Chil­dren play free. Tick­ets and fur­ther in­for­ma­tion are avail­able at www.wine­soft­hek­ing­val­ley.com.au.

KICK BACK: En­joy time with friends and fam­ily at La Dolce Vita.
