Love Italy Feast, Grossi and Pizzini

Saturday 23 March 2019



Join the Pizzini and Grossi families for a convivial Italian-style lunch in the King Valley Explore

Share  food and wine matches that will remind you of your travels in Italy or inspire you to go there – all in the beautiful King Valley and using lovingly produced locally sourced ingredients.

This menu will feature dishes from Guy Grossi’s regional tour of Italy and cookbook Love Italy alongside Italian wine varieties including some old favourites and a few lesser known ancient varieties all made by winemaker Joel Pizzini.

Each dish will explore Italian food traditions where the cooking techniques build richer flavours and texture into the dishes providing for new food memories and inspiration to enjoy more Italian-style food, wine and family gatherings.

This feast collaboration is a celebration of family, friendship and tradition as both Pizzini and Grossi’s family crafts are built on similar values, and are dedicated to maintaining the culture and practices of their heritage.

Tickets are $155 per person.
