VinItaly Countdown Continues
Greetings from Verona. I am here with Armando and the rest of the Fumanelli winery team preparing for our big international debut at VinItaly. It is such an exciting time to be in Verona as there are months of preparation that go into the event and there will be thousands of wine producers from near and far pouring wine in the historic city of Verona.
This year marks a very special opportunity for us as our dear friends, the Fumanellis, have invited us to pour along side them at the exhibition. I am so excited to meet wine lovers and enthusiasts from all over the world and show them the Trinitas wines that so many of us love and share.
VinItaly starts on Sunday officially, so in these days of preparation. Armando and Roberta have show my fiancée, Betsy, and me all the best places to eat delicious local salame, prosciutto, pasta and more and also where to try other great Amarone wines!
Another great part of being in Verona during this time is that we get to see the vineyards that produce the grapes for our Family Collection Amarone grow and develop. We are just starting to see the signs of buds breaking and shoots about to emerge! A very exciting time indeed.
Just over a year ago we hosted the Fumanellis at Trinitas in Napa for "Napa Meets Verona" where we brought the local music, cuisine and wine of Verona to Napa. Tomorrow the Fumanellis are hosting more than 50 people at their home, Squarano, for "Verona Meets Napa" featuring music, cuisine and Trinitas wines from Napa! We are very much looking forward for this chance to make new friends and continue to share our love and passion for wine with others. Here is a picture of Squarano, where we will have the dinner event tomorrow:
