The eleventh annual Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove Abundance festival in 2013 will be the celebration of the year's olive harvest. Explore the Abundance market stalls, freshly pressed olive oils, cooking demonstrations and top up at the martini bar. Relax with an olive oil massage, Montalto's estate wine tastings followed by lunch in the piazza with live entertainment. Learn about the history of olive cultivation and browse through the olive tree nursery.
Take on old friends in a bocce battle and win over new friends in the olive pit spitting competition. Abundance is a family event so bring the kids along for special kids activities including craft, face painting, entertainment and to take a ride on the olive express, stopping all groves!
Celebrate Abundance in the Chef's Hat Montalto Restaurant on Saturday and Sunday with the famous shared long table lunch. A festive day awaits you, with olive martinis or chilled flutes of delicious sparkling wine on arrival. The dining room will be transformed into an olive grove as chef Barry Davis showcases the versatility of estate grown olives and seasonal oils. Challenge for the mantle of Olive Pit Spitting Champion and wear the championship crown! The procession of the new season oils is the icing on the cake.
Abundance is an all-weather event and entry is free.
