Not only did tasters get the opportunity to taste Villa Sandi’s Prosecco Cartizze Vigna La Rivetta DOCG at yesterday’s Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri tasting in Chicago, but they were also offered a complimentary glass of the estates Prosecco “Il Fresco” as they arrived at the venue.

And then, when they stepped on to the elevator that took them up to walk-around tasting, their eyes were treated to sweeping landscape photos of Venice and the Cartizze sub-zone of the Prosecco DOCG (above).

Presenting three wines from the winery, Villa Sandi export director Flavio Geretto and the estate’s English-language blogger Jeremy Parzen were joined by importer Folio’s regional team for the midwest.

More than 350 food and wine professionals and food and wine writers attended the packed event. And many of them commented on what an unexpected and welcomed surprise it was to be offered a glass of Prosecco as they arrived on a frigid Chicago afternoon.

Flavio and Jeremy are headed to New York today to pour and speak at the Gambero Rosso event there tomorrow. We hope to see you there!
