The celebrations took place last Friday and Saturday
Last Friday and Saturday the Consorzio del Brunello celebrated its 50th anniversary. Here http://montalcinoreport.com/life/events/50th-anniversary-consorzio-del-vino-brunello-di-montalcino/ we talked about the conference of Friday morning celebrating the founding families.
Friday night, in the beautiful medieval Fortress of Montalcino the gala dinner took place. It was prepared by the Cerea brothers from the 3 Michelin star restaurant Da Vittorio, from Bergamo. During the dinner the Consorzio sold the 50th Anniversary celebrative boxes and the proceeds were entirely given to the Misericordia. So the intent of the dinner was not only that of enjoying some time together celebrating the Consorzio, but also that of doing something good and tangible for the territory. The evening finished with beautiful fireworks.
Saturday another conference was held, this time it was about the future of Montalcino and its wines: different people intervened and they talked about the increasing demand of wines from Montalcino, a trend that is expected to grow further. Our manager and winemaker Fabrizio Bindocci also intervened as President of the Fondazione Territoriale Brunello di Montalcino, a just-born association that has the intent to invest the voluntary contributions of the winery in different projects and activities, mainly devoted to social and health services, as those carried out by the Misericordia, to implement them.
