“La vita è una combinazione di pasta e magia. Life is a combination of pasta and magic.” - Federico Fellini.
There’s a reason that we all dream of living La Dolce Vita; the Italians really do know how to live the good life.
Margaret River has drawn some incredible winemaking and culinary talent from Italy over the years, thanks to its wonderful produce, world-class grape growing conditions and a welcoming Western Australian Italian community.
Take a journey through Margaret River's "Little Italy" and meet the winemakers crafting some of the region's most in-demand wines, learn about their Italian heritage and their continental winemaking inspiration.
This five-day food and wine immersion is hosted by Cassandra Charlick and Stepan Libricky.
Enjoy regional feasts, meet some legendary winemakers, access behind-the-scenes insider knowledge and dive deeper into the Italian magic found in Margaret River.
