'Ventisette' which means 27 in Italian, celebrates Mionetto's precision + attention to detail. The 'Peaches + Cream' Liqueur has duality in its name, referencing a type of (candy) corn as well as the fresh peaches + cream of tartar (which is a bi-product of winemaking). The resulting liqueur is bright...
Mionetto Quattro Stagioni
Inspired by the quattro stagioni pizza, I used Mionetto Prosecco four different ways, each way representing a season in the Okanagan.
Inspired by refreshment and the black box ingredients. After packing and being ready to move form Calgary to Ottawa, the black box arrived. I was parched, I was sweaty and I was exhausted. Iced tea is a classic refreshment and in the south (where peaches and corn are a plenty),...
Mionetto Milk Mimosa
The 3 mystery ingredients together inspired me to make a cocktail based on one of my favourite ways to enjoy Mionetto: watching a good movie with my partner and a big bowl of popcorn! There is honestly no better way to have a glass of wine that comes from passion...

The name of the cocktail is inspired by a famous opera aria by Puccini. It tells the story of a heartbroken young woman asking for her “Petit Papa Chéri”s help. It’s a song I adore and I put it on every time feed my baby girl. I wanted to create...

Peaches & Cream (Candy) Corn Fizz
With my Peaches & Cream (Candy) Corn Fizz, I wanted to celebrate the rich history of Mionetto Prosecco and highlight the stone fruit palate and aromatic notes of honey. To honour the more than a century of excellence in wine-making, I wanted to put the Mionetto to work in a...
Mio and the Monarch
It comes as no surprise that a butterfly needs two wings to fly. Two separate appendages working in unison towards one common goal. It is that concept in which this cocktail also takes flight. Sweet, rich chocolate harmonized with the dry and effervescent qualities of Mionetto Prosecco Brut. Orange flavor...
