On the lawn, you’ll find plenty of delicious food, including pizza, pasta, cheese and arancini. Gluten-free and vegetarian options will also be available. While you’re there, grab an Aperol Spritz or a prosecco mocktail from Van Di Vino.
Each ticket gives you tastings to all wine and beer at the festival, a festival program and a tasting glass for you to keep. You will also receive a tote bag that can hold up to two bottles of wine, in case you find something to take home.
If you upgrade your ticket and become a VIP, you’ll receive a 45 minute Prosecco Masterclass with Melissa Brauer. There, you’ll taste four different styles of prosecco, and pair it with antipasto snacks and cheese. You’ll also enjoy an hour of access in the VIP area, which has a grazing station.
The Prosecco Festival is an adults-only event, but dogs are welcome to come along as long as they are on a leash. The day will be split into two sessions, from 11am to 3pm and from 4:30pm to 8:30pm.
