Finally last week we had the chance to welcome the winners of our Facebook contest, Anne and her sister Elizabeth on their first trip to Italy. They first enjoyed a few days in Rome, then visited Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, and finally they arrived here, at the foot of our beautiful Dolomites.
We were delighted to get to know Anne, who is a cheerful lady, and her gracious sister Elizabeth. They both come from New York and are deeply in love with Mezzacorona! It was amazing to finally meet them and realize how Mezzacorona has become part of their daily life. Anne said: “I can drink nothing but Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio, I take it with me when I go to my friends’ parties otherwise I do not drink anything else!”
They won the Facebook contest with their photo of a bin full of Mezzacorona bottles they had after Hurricane Sandy. Anne and her family had no power at their place and moved to Elizabeth’s house for about a week. Fortunately Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio is never out of stock at their place, even in case of extraordinary events like that! Visit our Facebook page to see all the pictures that have been posted!
While they were here in the Trentino region, we took Anne and Elizabeth for a tour in our vineyards and showed them where the Pinot Grigio they love is grown. After having lunch on the mountaintop overlooking our valley, they had a personal winery tour and tasting here at Mezzacorona with our winemaker Matteo Covazzi.
Together we had a great time and at the end of the day we felt like we were old friends. That’s what Mezzacorona is all about: gathering together, sharing a moment with your loved ones, and enjoying the best times of your life.
Thank you Anne and Elizabeth, we toast you with a glass of Mezzacorona! Now we wait for the other winner, Laurie, who will be here in September, can’t wait!
