King Valley's 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. For the vineyards, perched on the fertile slopes that rise above the King River, are home to great wines and their makers. First, second and third generation Italian migrant families continue a tradition, today treating the Australian palate with their Mediterranean-inspired wines. Pinot grigio, arneis, verduzzo, sangiovese, tempranillo and barbera formed their first wave.

Then in 2000, 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, five other King Valley winemakers have followed suit – Brown Brothers, Chrismont, Ciccone, Pizzini and Sam Miranda.

In 2011, all six joined forces to create an exciting new 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.
