David Rocco’s Dolce Vita
For many, wine is an essential ingredient to la dolce vita, and celebrity chef David Rocco is among that group. The Toronto-based culinary icon, most recognized for his Food Network series David Rocco’s Dolce Vita, has released his own collection of quality wines, fittingly named after the hit show. The Ontario release of his wines — a Pinot Grigio, a Chianti and a Prosecco — was celebrated on Dec. 2, 2014, at Nespresso Café in Toronto with a star-studded official launch. Joining Rocco and his wife, Nina, were media and business personalities from across the city, including Glen Baxter of CTV’s In Fashion, Lisa Tant of Holt Renfrew, Laura Ward of Etalk and many others. The new brand’s food partners, Petite & Sweet and Capocaccia Trattoria, helped make the night an even more memorable one by providing sweets and eats to be savoured with the delicious wines. David Rocco’s Dolce Vita Wines will be available across Canada in early 2015.
