The Wines of Italy Festival Comes To Montecasino!

7 November 2019

Vini Classico… Vini Superiore… Vini Reserva… This November, wines of Italian origin ranging from the classic to the superior to vintage reserves will be spectacularly showcased at the second annual Vino in Piazza. The Wines of Italy Festival extends even further into an appreciation of the essence of ‘la dolce vita’ through Italian food, lifestyle, and culture – fittingly presented in SA’s very own Tuscan village on African soil – Montecasino.

Presented by the Consulate General of Italy in partnership with the Italian Embassy, the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Chamber of Commerce and held as part of the International Week of Italian Cuisine, Vino in Piazza is an opportunity to experience the very best that Italy has to offer – without the cost of a plane ticket! Vino in Piazza will introduce over 20 exclusive Italian wine producers who will showcase 130 wines from 11 different regions located in the North, centre, and South of Italy: Veneto, Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Lazio, Umbria, Abruzzo, Puglia, Sardinia and Sicily to the South African market.

Italian-styled pop-up restaurants and food stalls by O’vero Pizza, Nutella, Ferrero, Kinder, Grand Padano, Adriatic Italian food distributors and Lavazza, amongst others, will bring to life the quality and simplicity of Italian food, allowing you to indulge in the leisurely style of eating made famous by Italians, while the children are entertained in the Kinder Play Area.
