King Valley Prosecco Road
Venture to the King Valley in Victoria's High Country and you could be forgiven for thinking you'd been transported to the picturesque hills of northern Italy.
Inspired by a childhood growing up in the town of Valdobbiadene, the birthplace of prosecco, Otto Dal Zotto planted the first prosecco vines in the King Valley. Its fresh, crisp, palate proved instantly popular with those seeking a relaxed yet stylish, celebratory drink. Since that first planting, four other King Valley winemakers have followed suit.
All five have joined forces to create an exciting food and wine trail especially for lovers of the sparkling Italian white. Intimate tastings with the makers, savouring rustic Italian cuisine and conversations about the meaning of life over a game of bocce, are all stops along King Valley Prosecco Road.
