Grazie Mille to our stunning La Dolce Vita Club members – for swirling in to a little piece of Italy in the heart of Margaret River – for the inaugural ‘ La Dolce Vita’ Long-Table Lunch at Olio Bello on Sunday 23 November.

From Proseco and Crostini in the courtyard, a back-of-house pressing and production tour (featuring the Italian pressing machine direct from Toscana), to an overflowing Tuscan table – featuring farm-baked olive bread, bruschetta, dukkah dusted leccino chicken,hand-rolled pappardelle, parmesan, chilli and garlic oils, chocobello mandarin dolci, biscotti a Piedmonte and endless vini del regione – not to mention the Salerno –

you became a part of Olio Bello’s history, its magic and our forever expanding La Dolce Vita family!

You arrived late morning, danced amongst the olive groves and left at Dusk (7pm to be precise) – ample time to perfect the art of “La Dolce Vita’ living.

I knew things were in full Italian swing, when I glanced back at my Millenovecentosettantatre (1973)  Alfa Romeo Spider. which was performing its  role as the nastro azzuro boot esky handsomely well, to spot the musicians from Eco d’Italia Rosie and Laura in the front seats singing ‘That’s Amore’ on top note!

This was surpassed only by the quintessential pouring of the sublime blood orange liqueur Salerno (thanks to Helen Appleyard) along the rustic wooden table and subsequent dancing through the olive groves – where one guest found a long lost cousin from their small Italian village amongst the crowd!

And, so ended the inaugural La Dolce Vita long table lunch. Grazie Mille to Helen, Jonica, Karen and friends for joining us – and we look forward to seeing you all there again – next year or sooner! 

Please find attached some red carpet pics from the event and don’t forget  in the lead up to the Festive Season that ‘Alla Tavola – Non s’invecchia‘ – at the table with family and good friends – you will never grow old!
