I'm just back from doing the King Valley's Prosecco Road in the High Country. Tasting between magnificent scenery but a bit of a way out of town.



Fortunately, for Melburnians, we don't have to travel that far to sip the good life. Case in point. Melbourne's one-day Prosecco Festival is returning for its seventh year to be held at Abbotsford Convent on Saturday, March 2.



Nothing says summer like Prosecco and even if it rains, the day will be effervescent with bubbles. This bubbly event draws 45+ homegrown and international brands including Pizzini Wines, Brown Brothers, Rigoni, Cester Camillo, Rebuli, Dal Zotto, Babo, See Saw Wines, Tar and Roses, Vinea Marson and De Bortoli.



Meet the makers and importers who will be on-site to chat about their drops. You may even sport Kylie Minogue or at least her photo as her prosecco rosé is available for sampling.



And if you are not a Prosecco drinker other options include beer, and Edenvale will be in attendance offering a range of alcohol-free vinos and cocktails. Food is part of the show including Milawa Cheese, Pav Queen, Yes Porketta and Arancini Art. And hey, this is Melbourne so vegetarian and gluten-free options are a definite.



Book a VIP masterclass with Melissa Brauer the Prosecco Queen and founder of the event. She'll teach you about all things Prosecco. This class pairs Prosecco with antipasto snacks and cheese. This year's festival is '80s-themed so if you want to dig around in your wardrobe or op-shop you can get into the flow.

There will also be an 80s soundtrack. At night, there is a blue light disco after-party that includes the obligatory disco balls, lasers and a smoke machine. Additional ticket required.



The day is divided into two four-hour time slots, one from 11 am to 3 pm and one from 4.30 pm to 8.30 pm, with one VIP session available per time slot. Tickets start at $69 on Eventbrite.
