Our most popular dinner returns!

 
 

At the Grand we love the Pizzini family and of course we adore Pizzini wines!

Their exploration of Italian grape varieties is exceptional, but it's our shared love of the family table, good food, and fantastic wines that brings us together again for these fantastic dinners.

The Pizzini's winemaking dream began in 1978 when they planted their first vines in the King Valley, then in 1994 their first wine under the Pizzini label was produced.

Pizzini is truly a family affair, with parents Fred and Katrina, their sons Joel and Carlo, and daughter Natalie, all deeply involved in the business.
