Italians do it better
Bongiorno! The Italian Wine and Food Festival is on Sunday 27th May 2018, between 10.00am and 6.30pm at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens.

The Festival celebrates all that is wonderful about the rich and vibrant Italian wine and food culture in Australia. It brings Italy's gastronomic delights from its many regions to us right here. Delisioso.

Italian Wine and Food Festival
Pizza Throwing

Follow your nose and savour the food, coffee, wine, beer and be transported to Italy for the day. From street-style pizza to fresh pasta, there will be something for everyone.

Up on the main stage, there'll be fun and entertaining cooking demonstrations. From pasta making to pizza throwing, you'll be inspired to whip up your own Italian feast at home. There will even be a Nutella masterclass. Click here for full details of the program for the day.

Some of Melbourne's favourite chefs will be on hand to share their knowledge and passion for Italian cuisine. Say ciao to much-loved locals Rosa Mitchell (Rosa's Canteen), Johnny di Francesco (400 Gradi) and Rita Macali (Lladro), who along with teams from Caterina's Cucina e Bar, Trattoria Emilia, Bar Idda, Pasta Classica, La Bonta, Small Axe and Pasta Adagio will be cooking up a storm. Plenty of tasting will be available.

The Marketplace will feature That's Amore Cheese, Saluministi, Pane e Pizzico, Prosciutto di Parma Consorzio, AVPN Pizza Association, Pasta Classica, Luca Ciano Sauces, Ardor Gnocchi, Truffle Traders, 7 Apples Gelato, Maccora Vinocotto, Vinotopia, Molecola Italian Soda, Books for Cooks plus many more. Are you hungry yet?

If wine is your thing, you'll be able to taste over 200 Italian wines from different regions in Italy and many of the Italian style wines made right here in Australia. Why not take an Italian Wine Masterclass and meet the winemakers and importers? You'll learn all about the different regions and the grape varieties, not to mention how good they taste.

Plenty of coffee from Espresso di Manfredi's baristas, or Moretti Beer on tap. Over at the Festival Bar, try a Negroni and Spritz cocktails - bellissimo.

Ticket prices start from $25 for festival entry if pre-purchased or $30 on the day. Click here for details of all ticket types. Kids enter for free.

So hop on to your Vespa and get ready for a day filled with Italian taste sensations.
