Rejoice in all that is A Little Bit of Italy in Broke. Indulge in the bella Broke Fordwich Wine Region for fun and gusto at this two day event that gives visitors to the little known and tranquil destination the opportunity to enjoy a great Italian fiesta and experience mouth watering gourmet delights, which have long been the world’s envy. It's Italy without the airfare.

Broke is like a secret, one you can’t wait to share, it's romantic, sophisticated and worth the trip.

Now in its 12th year, the festival that started out as a private dinner catered by an Italian chef has grown into a celebration of all that is win, food, music, family and community, coloured by the enthusiasm associated with the Italians' enjoyment of these things.

Dine on pizza, pasta, antipasto, bruschetta, gelato, espresso, panini; sip Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Barbera, Semillon, Chardonnay, Shirz; take in a cooking class, workshop or demonstration; savour Olive oil and olive tastings in the grove; challenge a friend to a game of bocce or giant jenga to the back drop of Yellow Rock or relax to live tunes from the accordion or classical guitar. Enjoy a little bit of Italy and a whole lot of Broke Fordwich.

This year an Italian inspired 4 course feast, matched with Italian varietals, will be held Saturday evening at Margan Wines. Begin in the Piazza and finish in the Barrel Room.

The price of entry is the $10 purchase of a souvenir tasting glass, which is used at each venue for a free sample of the local wines.

Che sta per essere un buon weekend. Buon Appetitio (It's going to be a good weekend, have a great meal)
