Is VOV still on the shelves in Italy?

tatamagouche Jan 28, 2008 10:24 AM

Hi all--
It's been a couple of years since I've been to Italy, & I finally killed my last bottle of VOV, made I think by Pezziol? Question: is it still widely available in Italy? I'm not finding anyone that imports it here to the States; just hoping on my next trip there in May I'll still be able to pick up a few bottles. Thanks!!

    I'll take a chance at sounding stupid, but what is VOV?

        It is an egg based wine drink popular in Italy. Here's a link:

          Thanks for that bnemes3343, I learned something new today. Sounds like interesting stuff, I'll have to look for it next time I'm over there.

            Essentially it's zabaglione in a bottle.

              So, a confesion: I've never had it either. We're going to Italy in May and I am going to look for it. Zabaglione in a bottle sounds like a winner to me!

                It is indeed a winner, & I just heard back from an Italian distributor that it's definitely not available anywhere here in the States. So go, enjoy, & stock up!

                  P.S. It also comes in the coolest-looking bottle ever.

                    Can't wait. I don't know if there is any bad food in Italy (ok, maybe once we had a bad meal), but I'm really looking forward to the trip and will definitely try the OVO.
