Italian Food & Wine Weekend

Experience the essence of Italy with our fabulous Food & Wine weekend in Bright, north east Victoria.  Bright is a great destination for a weekend away with a vast array of shops, bars, galleries and activities and some wonderful places to stay.

This is a three day event and celebrates the very best of Italian Food & Wine.  Start on Friday with an exclusive Cooking Class led by Patrizia Simone of the famous Simone's Restaurant in Bright, and then enjoy the chance to taste what you have helped to prepare.

On the Saturday enjoy an authentic five course Italian Lazy Lunch prepared by Mick, who is a professional chef, with each dish carefully complemented by premium imported Italian or locally produced wines.
