Nino Franco sparkles at FishWorks!

Together with Tim McLaughlin-Green of Sommelier’s Choice and Federica Bon from Nino Franco, we're delighted to announce that the evening was an amazing experience - for both lovers of Prosecco and those who came in for an adventure.

Anyone who has visited the magical city of Venice has most certainly encountered the famous wine of Prosecco. "The legendary estate of Nino Franco is located in the celebrated region of Valdobbiadene since 1919." Federica Bon begins the night...

Unquestionably one of the top producers of Prosecco today, Primo Franco was also one of the first pioneers to export the Prosecco and to introduce a different sparkling wine than Champagne into the international market. "These wines are quite simply the best Prosecco you can find perfect as an aperitif" says Tim McLaughlin-Green, which we paired with artisian breads, salsa verde, aioli & our homemade taramasalata...

Exceptional Grave di Stecca 2010 was enjoyed with the freshest Brixham turbot steak with brown shrimp, lemon thyme butter & samphire. Exciting pairings like Primo Franco DOCG 2013 with Prosecco cured Scottish salmon with fennel & fresh blood orange... and much more.

Sweet treat Il Sole 2008 Corteforte with apple tart and just about right to finish - a selection of British blue cheeses with sweet cinnamon crackers, chutney & cherry & sultana bread with a glass of the award winning Primo Franco 2013 DOCG.

Guests were thrilled with the evening and commented: "The Prosecco cured Salmon was unusual, but one of the best I've tasted... As well as combining blue cheese with Prosecco which works surprisingly well! It was a truly great experience and we are definitely coming to the next one."
