“Berlucchi, of course”. The new Berlucchi format debuts in Portovenere

November 2019

The Grand Hotel Portovenere hosted the first Berlucchi event dedicated to wine industry professionals.

The 5-star hotel in Portovenere has been chosen by Berlucchi for the debut of the “Naturalmente Berlucchi” format which organizes meetings with industry professionals and targeted tastings in order to give sommelier more information and tools to better present Berlucchi to the final consumer.

During the event, the tasting of Berlucchi was punctuated by focused storytelling and by a combination of finger food prepared by the Palmaria Restaurant, the hotel restaurant overlooking the Gulf of Poets.

“This represented a good experience for the participants that – in this way – may taste the uniqueness of Berlucchi in an equally unique setting giving breathtaking views in the seaside village of Unesco – commented Cristina Raso, marketing director of the Grand Hotel Portovenere – The idea has been to combine technical-informative activities in the meeting room with friendly moments on the Palmaria Restaurant veranda overlooking the sea”.

More and more the Grand Hotel Portovenere, close to regions emblazoned for the quality of agricultural products, such as Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Piedmont, and Lombardy, is becoming a hub of wine and food culture, a center of ideas and a source of new inputs to improve the offer of local restaurants.
