On November 25, the patriarch of the legendary Dal Zotto winemaking family, Otto Dal Zotto, will bring his King Valley drops to Arts Centre Melbourne’s resident restaurant The Barre for a four-course lunch.
Dal Zotto is responsible for making Australia’s very first prosecco from cuttings he brought from his hometown of Valdobbiadene in Italy. At the exclusive lunch at The Barre, each of his wines will be paired with a dish by senior chef de partie Cecilia Salvante. The two will walk guests through the Sunday spread, sharing their knowledge and inspirations along the way.
On arrival, expect canapés of polenta fries and with foie gras served with Dal Zotto’s Pink Pucino Prosecco. What’s being called Act One will feature the likes of cured salmon and the 2018 riesling, followed by Act Two’s 24-hour brined lamb rack alongside the 2018 barbera (a rich and fruity red) and 2017 rosato (a crisp rosé). The Dal Zotto 2015 Elena dessert wine will round out the show with a sweet ricotta cheese Cubo cassata for the Final Act.
Lunch starts at 11.30am, with vegetarian and gluten-free options available upon request.
