The whole world love Prosecco, but is Italian sparkling wine all about prosecco? How is prosecco made? What is Prosecco? Prosecco is an appellation with plenty of producers and wines, from Asolo to Millesimato, what is their meaning, their difference? But Italy is also classic method sparkling wines, we all know Champagne, but Italy offers some of the best alternatives, from Franciacorta to Trento. If you love sparkling wine as Andrea does, you don’t want to miss this one.

The tasting will include 5 different Italian sparkling wines and will last approximately an hour and it is limited to 30 people.

These are some of the feedbacks Andrea has received:

"What a great night! Thank you. Can't wait for the next"
"Superb Evening. Thank you"
"Excellent nigh - thank you very much for a lovely night. Very knowledgeable - Learnt a lot about wine"

About the organizer of the event was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. As soon as Andrea (the founder) landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available were not the ones he was used to when grwoing up in Italy.

From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a journey to source quality Italian wine and food from small Italian, artisan producers:’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and artisans.

All our products are authentic and of the highest quality and made using the best, natural ingredients and respecting the environment; none of our product contains palm oil or preservatives, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is essential for a long and healthy life. We do not import industrially made products or so called "Italian sounding" food.

Since starting in 2003, has been the recipient of several awards.
