Victoria's Mediterranean

Step into Little Italy in the King Valley, where dynamic Italian migrant families established wineries that continue to innovate through the generations. You'll taste increasingly well-known Italian wines, including prosecco, nebbiolo, sangiovese, pinot grigio, dolcetto, arneis and barbera.

Wine identities

Meet the King Valley's characters. Delight in rustic Italian cuisine from Katrina's cookbook matched with house drops at Pizzini Wines, or chat to Otto Dal Zotto about his family's wines over bocce at Dal Zotto Estate. Encounter the Brown brothers at the eponymous vineyard's gourmet Epicurean Centre.

Celebrating the good life

Celebrate La Dolce Vita during November at the King Valley, when wineries open their doors to celebrate the arrival of spring, and warm yourself with the region's red wines at the June Queen's Birthday weekend's Weekend Fit For A King.

Prosecco Road

Since 1999, when Otto Dal Zotto planted the first prosecco vines in the King Valley, five other local winemakers have begun producing the sparkling Italian white. Together they have created Prosecco Road, a sensational food and wine trail celebrating the best of the rustic Italian dining experience.
