Introducing ‘Vanessa’ our little Peugeot J7 van.
First registered in 1973 in Orange, just north of Avignon in the south of France, Her original registered owner is listed as an ‘arboriculteur’, which translates as a tree surgeon or fruit tree farmer. Monsieur Gilbert was her only owner until Karen found her in 2016 and recognised her potential as a beautiful, vintage Prosecco Van.
She has been lovingly restored to the highest standards and can now serve both white and rose flash cooled Frizzenti on tap. She also boasts a 90 bottle capacity wine fridge in which to chill our bottles of Prosecco.
Vanessa is a little wider than a VW Campervan, meaning she's still compact enough for most events, but it makes her large enough to be able to offer more than just prosecco.
Please contact us to discuss options including G&T's, Pimms and Cocktails
Karen is our lady in the van (nothing at all like Dame Maggie Smiths’ character). She has immense experience in the wine industry having worked as a sales manager for a global wine company for many years.
During a holiday in 2016, when exploring the street vendors in Thailand, the idea of a Prosecco van came to Karen. However, it wasn’t until the youngest of her four son's started making plans to leave home that she began to seriously look into the mobile bar concept and started a business plan. She soon realised that she needed some extra investment....Through her sister she found Carolyn and Ruth, the three ladies became business partners, The Wayward Sisters Ltd was born and Vanessa's future was secured.
Frizzenti Vino Frizzanti (11%) - is a light sparkling wine served on tap and is produced in Italy’s Veneto region. Made from the Glera grape, Vino Frizzanti is fresh and light, with a smaller bubble which means a smoother drink, making it ideal for any occasion and location.
Frizzenti Rosato (11%) – is a sparkling pink wine served on tap, made from a blend of Pinot Nero and Rabaso grapes. Rosato has a fruity bouquet, with a distinct raspberry note. Tangy on the palate, beautifully smooth with a good fruit acid.
Our bottled Prosecco is currently a choice between Biscardo Millesimato or Dea Del Mare (tasting notes for both are available on request)
Each Keg of Frizzenti can either be White or Rose. Approx 156 glasses per 20 litre Keg.
