The story behind the Bellini is that is was created in the 1930s or 40s at Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy by bartender Giuseppe Cipriani. It was named after a favorite painter, Giovanni Bellini. Originally, the Bellini used sparkling Italian wine and is still made that way in Italy, elsewhere it is often made with Champagne.
Also, try the mocktail version, the Baby Bellini.
