Sparkling wines in Friuli Venezia Giulia: a starting point for success.
«The success of this first edition – Antonio Tesolin, Chairman of Pro Casarsa della Delizia, organizer of the Festival and the Selection, commented – confirms the intuition that we had in the process of establishment of the Selection: a "showcase" for the regional sparkling wine production lacked. Now this space that rewards the excellence of the Friuli Venezia Giulia bubbles exists and, most of all, we have the numbers of this growing industry. A starting point from which to begin to ponder with data in hand about the possibilities of production and, above all, of sales, opening for products driven by the Friuli brand».
