Hilltop to River Flats: A Vineyard Tasting Journey

Taste Italian wines as you walk among the vines

Take an indulgent ramble with Alfred Pizzini through the family’s beautiful King Valley vineyards in the middle of harvest, enjoying stories from the front-line of the award-winning winery while learning the minutiae of elevation, soils and site orientation.

Taste fruit off the vine and sample the wines:

* Prosecco served on the hill as you soak up the King Valley views.
* Sangiovese enjoyed in one of this grape variety's most distinguished vineyards.
* Riesling sipped on one Pizzini's best sites.

Two food matches, enjoyed in situ, will reveal why Italian varietals really shine when served alongside food.

The walk will cover approximately two kilometres and includes some hills, so a basic fitness level is required.


For online purchases via melbournefoodandwine.com.au, a credit card fee of up to 1.7% and booking fee of up to $4.00 per transaction may be applied. Purchases through other sites may incur different booking fees.
