Prosecco is the wine on everyone’s lips, but not long ago the thought of the Prosecco variety growing in Australia sounded farfetched. Otto Dal Zotto was determined however, and after rallying the boys (his sons Michael and Christian) they planted Australia’s first Prosecco vines in the King Valley in 1999.
One might say the rest is history, but there’s so much more to this story. It’s not just about beating a path for Italian wine varieties, but a way of life – from reaping what you sow to a culture of sharing.
Join the Dal Zotto family as they personally take you through their story with a wander around their property in ‘cento passi’ (100 footsteps). Enjoy a glass of Prosecco on a vineyard tour with one of the innovators themselves – Otto, Michael or Christian. From here you’ll visit Elena Dal Zotto in her garden as she shows how essential fresh seasonal produce is to life here. Finally, you’ll be led to the trattoria and presented with four dishes by Chef Nikki Kennedy featuring Northeast produce to complement the l’Immigrante wines – Prosecco, Barbera and Nebbiolo and a fourth wine to match the season.
