ICCI Melbourne - 2022 Cocktail and Launch Event
The Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Melbourne (ICCI) celebrated a successful Cocktail Launch Event and I was honoured to be invited. The event was part of the True Italian Taste project and held at the Port Melbourne Yacht Club with glorious beach views. Following nearly two years of online events to keep our social life sparkling, we were finally able to gather in person for this event.
You could feel the excitement when everyone arrived and being welcomed by delectable specialty Italian food, world class cocktails including Espresso Martini, Americano, Negroni Spritz and of course the main celebration of sipping Prosecco DOC. We were privileged to be able to have authentic sparkling Spumante/Frizzante wine.
Italian traditions are very important to our soul and culture. Processes of certain food and wine is of upmost importance which allows traditions to be preserved. The Prosecco DOC production is part of this preservation and is created using the Método Classico process and each bottle is uniquely marked to ensure authenticity. The origin is located in Veneto, North East Italy in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, from a village named Prosecco in the province of Trieste. The grape used to create this beautiful liquid gold is from the Veneto region. We can confidently classify Prosecco as one of the most appreciated and adored Italian wines.
The highlight of the evening was not only witnessing and being inspired by the event partners that have been supporting ICCI but it was a night of inspirational speeches, being treated to a cocktail masterclass by the World's Best Bartender Orlando Marzo and also networking with old and new friends and businesses.
Thank you to ICCI’s amazing team for such an exceptional and brilliant night.
We are now excitingly waiting for the next event.
