A Ferrari Trentodoc tasting for the United States Congress
For the first time the Ferrari Trentodoc was served to the United States Congress, the parliament of the United States of America. Ferrari was presented at the tasting by Matteo Lunelli, the President of the Ferrari Winery and it was considered an unanimous hit. This first official entrance of Ferrari into the United States Capitol was the climax of a two day visit to the United States by a very selected Italian delegation of well-known wineries in Italy and it was all organized by Vinitaly.
On the 19 July, before the visit to Congress, there was a meeting between the Italian delegation and the Italian ambassador to the States, Mr. Claudio Bisogniero, who reinforced the Italian wines primary standing regarding quantity and value in the current American market.
The ambassador emphasized how important wine is for Italian culture and for this reason Italian wine will have a big role in the activities during the year of Italian culture in the United States in 2013.
The meeting and the following wine tasting with the members of the Wine Caucus, the Congressional board in charge of wine promotion and protection, was the key moment of this event.
“It was extremely emotional and an honor “ stated Matteo Lunelli “to see Ferrari Trentodoc being poured in the greatest monument to democracy, the United States Capitol. This initiative is one of many organized in order to improve wine culture and knowledge in the United States. We need to do a great deal more for the Italian sparkling wine, even if it is very successful in the United States, by educating the American public because our labels are expressions of different production methodologies and very different areas and each needs to be understood for its identity and appreciated for its diversity."
