Santa Margherita Wine Group – reality led by the Marzotto family, flag of Italian wine excellence in the world for 86 years – will be the protagonist of the virtual round table named The sacredness of wine. From food to conviviality. Wine is not a product like all the others. Work of the generosity of nature, but also of man’s work, intelligence and experience, it has gone beyond the centuries bringing with it a sacred value which, passing through all historical eras, continues today. Over the last few decades there has been a further, epochal change. Wine has gone from being an essential part of nutrition, an indispensable source of calories and energy, to an element of pleasure, taste, conversation. Thus, sixty years ago, Pinot Grigio Santa Margherita debuted, a new, elegant and modern wine that started a real revolution of taste and oenological pleasure. Discussing it with La Cucina Italiana were Beniamino Garofalo, CEO of Santa Margherita Gruppo Vinicolo, and Giovanna Frosini, Professor of History of the Italian Language and Academic of Bran.
