Welcome to Horsham Piazza Italia

Contrada del Vino Italiano Wine Tour

Contrada del Vino Italiano!

Over the Easter break, Horsham is once again hosting its rather special ‘Italian wine tasting tour’ across the town as part of the Food & Drink themed activities for this year’s Horsham Piazza Italia event. This year the tour is sponsored by the Carfax based Horsham Enoteca.

 The Wine Tour is a great opportunity for you to visit different restaurants and bars around Horsham Town Centre to have the chance to win some great food and wine based prizes, all while tasting some fine Italian wine!

This year the wine trail is running for two weeks from Saturday 28th March to Sunday 12th April so there is plenty more time for you to fill in your wine tour passports, which you can pick up from Horsham Enoteca throughout the fortnight. You will no longer be restricted to drinking wine just on the Easter Monday!
