London’s first ever Prosecco festival made its debut last year, and it’s returning this April with a great big pop and a fizz!
Prosecco Springs is bringing northern Italy to east London, with truck loads of the fizzy stuff, as well as charcuterie, antipasti and lots of Italian cheese. Could things get any better?
The four-day fizzfest (26–29 April) will involve tastings, live jazz, DJs and plenty of tipsy fun. A day pass (that’s a five hour session) costs £40, which is actually pretty reasonable considering it includes eight glasses of Prosecco from eight different producers, including Bottega, Mionetto and Vigna Belvedere.
Those who are pottiest for the pop can also opt to pay a little extra for some masterclasses, led by the experts. You’ll learn all there is to know about the stuff, including what types of Prosecco go with what types of food. (Or you can just sod the formalities because, let’s face it, is there really a wrong way to drink Prosecco?
I assume we can all stop worrying about that phantom ‘Prosecco drought’ now.
The festival will take place from Thursday, April 26 until Sunday, April 29 at Oval Space in Bethnal Green. For more info, and to get your hands on a ticket, head over to Fever. Your ticket will include entry to the festival plus eight glasses of Prosecco (includes an optional Aperol Spritz).
