The ultimate festival for Prosecco lovers…
Today, Prosecco Springs, London’s foremost festival solely dedicated to Prosecco, reveals the first wave of producers and partners who will be joining them at East London’s Oval Space in April.
Following the sell-out success of its inaugural event in 2017, Prosecco Springs will once again bring together the winning combination of fine Prosecco, authentic Italian food, live music, tastings, masterclasses under one roof for four days only, from Thursday 26th – Sunday 29th April 2018.
Meet the Producers…
Producing some of the finest Italian Prosecco in the hills of Treviso for over 30 years, Bottega offers a beautiful range of premium Italian sparkling wines, which are crafted with excellence and presented in distinctive, beautifully designed packaging. The iconic Bottega Gold Prosecco is the ideal choice for aperitifs and parties, or as a prestigious gift for special occasions.
In 1887, master winemaker Francesco Mionetto opened his winery amidst the rolling hills of Valdobbiadene in the heart of the Prosecco area. Today, Mionetto are shining examples of Prosecco production on the international scene; their founder’s love and passion for the region and its wines remain fundamental values for the company.
A pleasant and captivating Prosecco, Vigna Belvedere is produced with great passion for vine growing and a respect for nature. These values have led them to carefully follow the whole cycle, step by step, from the vineyard to the bottle, preserving the health of their grapevines to obtain a well balanced production, always favouring quality over quantity.
Meet the Partners…
Everybody’s favourite aperitif, Aperol, will be returning once again for 2018. The Aperol Spritz Terrace Bar was a much-loved hangout spot at the inaugural event, offering guests the chance to sip spritzes and sundowners in the sunshine. They’ll be returning to the terrace once again with their iconic orange bar, and will be taking up residence in the brand new outdoor Prosecco Park.
EAST LONDON WINE SCHOOL
Back by popular demand, Prosecco Springs will be doubling the number of masterclasses in 2018. Over the course of the hour-long masterclass, expert sommeliers from the East London Wine School will guide you through the core principles of wine tasting. Learn about the process from grape to glass, find out about different types of Prosecco and how to pair Prosecco with food.
