The Wog With The Grog at Good Food and Wine Show Melbourne, 2015

The Melbourne leg of the 'Good Food and Wine Show' kicks off in June - on June 5 to June 8 - and it's set to be a fantastic event.

Oh, and The Wog With The Grog is set to be there for the first time.

Come see us at stand E21!

The Wog With The Grog has exhibited at other GFAW shows in Sydney.

Says Robert Dessanti from The Wog With The Grog about his excitement in joining the renowned expo in the city of Melbourne: "Melbourne is the most European of the Australian cities. It's somewhat like Italy in that its focus is on good food, art, and fashion. It is an innovative and creative city, engaged with the world, and is home to more than four million people speaking around 180 different languages."

We are launching the Nardini Acqua di Cedro 350ml versions of the hugely popular Italian drink.

It's a drink that has to be trialed to be believed - come by and we'll give you a sample to savour.

You can also win TWO DOUBLE PASSES to the Melbourne show!

Nonna Paola Says Thanks To The Wog With The Grog: VIDEO

Nonna Paola is the very funny, completely unique Italo-Australian viral sensation taking over the internet right now.

The thing is, Nonna Paola IS unique, but because so many people can relate to her, she feels incredibly familiar to us all, whether we have a Nonna like her, or not. Whether we're Italian, Australian, or another nationality.

Here, she gives The Wog With The Grog founder Robert Dessanti a big shout out, to thank Rob sending across some exceptional wines for her and her son Greg (he's the man behind the camera, recording his mother for all the world to see) to enjoy. It was a pleasure, and drinking them with castagne (chestnuts) - even better!

Best bit: Nonna Paola attempting to say 'The Wog With The Grog', but saying "The Wog With The Frog". We love you, Nonna. Hope you enjoyed the drop, many times over!
