La Dolce Vita – The Good Life
Wood- fired pizzas, olives, wines & the finest millinery can all be experienced at Whispering Brook this year.
Olive oil pizza cooked in the wood fired oven, sound tempting? This year you’ll learn to make your own & enjoy one (or two) for lunch as Chef Andy Wright of The Cellar Restaurant joins Whispering Brook with his pop-up restaurant & pizza demonstrations.
Have you ever been on an Olive Grove or Vineyard walk & talk with the grower? Here’s your opportunity, owners Susan & Adam & their grower Ron Corino will be hosting the walk & talks each morning at 11.15am (bookings not required). The olive grove was planted in 1997 & 1998 & produces premium Tuscan varietal olive oils & Kalamata table olives; they grow Semillon, Shiraz, Merlot & the elusive Touriga Nacional in the vineyard.
Fascinated by the art & skills of a milliner? Talented Milliner Cathy Kelly of Embellish Atelier will showcase her collection & run a hands on millinery workshop on Sunday afternoon from 2pm. Cathy is inspired by the catwalks of Milan & the sophistication & glamour of the Italian Woman of a bygone era.
Relax under the shade of the verandah, or on a long table in the olive grove, lunch Italian style, enjoy local wines & olives or take in a workshop that certainly is sampling The Good Life!
