It maybe the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, but wine lovers are being encouraged to spend a Weekend Fit for a King at this festival amongst King Valley’s wineries in Victoria’s High Country.

The Weekend Fit for a King is on June 10 and 11 and will offer festival-goers a taste of the new release wines from winemakers across the region including the Italian varietals best known in the King Valley – Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo.

WEEKEND FIT FOR A KING

  • Queen’s Birthday Weekend
  • Saturday 10 + Sunday 11 June 2017
  • Tickets & more information here.

And of course, what wine tasting weekend would be complete without an authentic Italian meal? Homemade dishes from old family recipes including farm-made sausages, warming stews, a feast of pasta and pizza and cannoli for those with a sweet tooth will feature throughout the festival.
