Have you ever longed to visit Italy? Can you recite the dialogue from ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ by heart? Accepted the fact that your champagne on a beer budget means the furthest you’ll probably get from Brisbane this year is a cheeky Gold Coast trip?

We hear you, and so does Il Verde. From November 1, start your own Italian tour by sipping your way through the sunny vineyards of Tuscany – no passport or plane ticket required. Induldge in vintage wines from some of Italy’s most beautiful vineyards, including Alto Adige, Abruzzo and Tuscany. Molto bene!

Enjoy the 8-week special over woodfire pizza and perfect linguine at the King Street ristorante as you learn more about the origin, history and flavour of the unique drops. A new wine will be showcased each week, so Impress your friends and enrage your enemies as you bask in the knowledge (and alcohol glow) of rare Italian wines.
