The palate is crisp, beautifully dry and spine-tingling fresh - Nick Munday

Santa & D'Sas is a collaboration between two winemaking families - Santarossa & Di Sciascio. With a shared Italian cultural heritage and with strong links to the King Valley, it's no surprise they produce wonderful Prosecco. The King & I is their flagship wine, comes in a Saverglass bottle and is capped with a crown seal to protect and preserve the Prosecco's freshness and quality. The King & I is a blend of wines from 4 different years, the youngest is from the year 2022. Blending a number of different vintages (as they do in Champagne) produces a much more consistent wine year to year, while adding complexity to the aroma and flavour.

"Distinctive and fragrant nose of apple blossom, fresh apple, and melon aromas along with the faintest hint of elderflowers. The palate is crisp, beautifully dry and spine-tingling fresh (no doubt in part due to being bottled under crown seal). A fine, persistent mousse is, like everything else in this wine, impressive. Intense flavours of apples and pear lead to a long and lingering finish. Great buying/drinking."  Nick Munday

Wine region map of Victoria

Victoria

Victoria is home to more than 800 wineries across 21 wine regions. The regions are Alpine Valley, Beechworth, Bendigo, Geelong, Gippsland, Glenrowan, Goulburn Valley, Grampians, Heathcote, Henty, King Valley, Macedon Ranges, Mornington Peninsula, Murray Darling, Pyrenees, Rutherglen, Strathbogie Ranges, Sunbury, Swan Hill, Upper Goulburn and Yarra Valley.

Victoria's first vines were planted at Yering in the Yarra Valley in 1838. By 1868 over 3,000 acres had been planted in Victoria, establishing Victoria as the premier wine State of the day. Today, the original vineyards planted at Best's Wines are among the oldest and rarest pre-phylloxera plantings in the world.

Victoria's climate varies from hot and dry in the north to cool in the south and each wine region specialises in different varietals. For example, Rutherglen in the north is famous for its opulent Muscats and Topaque and bold reds, while the many cooler climate regions near Melbourne produce world class Chardonnay and pinot Noir. Victoria is truly a wine lover's playground.
