ProWein in fact has been a fixture for years, a positive experience that we repeat with enthusiasm, a lot of passion and the desire to make our products known to an ever wider audience.
This year was recorded at our stand (Hall 15 F 14) a large participation, even higher than the previous year.
The quality of the visitors is very high, all important professionals, strongly interested in the history of the winery and the emotional bond with our territory, Valtènesi, Lake Garda.
Lugana Selezione Bruno Franzosi, the new wine dedicated to Bruno Franzosi, founder of the winery, was presented as a preview at ProWein, enjoying considerable approval (see please: “The new Lugana Selezione Bruno Franzosi is coming”).
The visitors have been able to appreciate its harmonic and persistent taste, with fruity notes, good acidity and characteristic minerality, produced in a limited edition, obtained from a careful selection of 100% Trebbiano di Lugana grapes, grown south of Lake Garda between Desenzano and Sirmione.
But it did not end here … Visitors tasted the new Valtènesi Chiaretto, made from Groppello, Barbera, Marzemino and Sangiovese grapes, fruity, sapid and with a good acidity.
Among the most appreciated wines, Lugana, Valtènesi Chiaretto and Rebo, were appreciated Groppello Dop, Marzemino Dop, Garda Classico Rosso Superiore Bruno Franzosi and Privilegio DOP.
ProWein has been an excellent opportunity for years to establish new partnerships and collaborations at international level, from Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, United States to Asian countries.
It is a privileged moment to meet loyal customers and importers who are curious about the history of the winery, the methods of cultivation of the grapes, their harvest up to the vinification process.
We will be part of the next ProWein in Düsseldorf scheduled from 17 to 19 March 2019.
To another great year! See you soon!
