Happy Birthday, Chef: Bormioli Rocco joins the celebrations for Gualterio Marchesi’s 80th birthday

Premium Wine glasses for the aperitif and the gala dinner organised by the Alma Wine Academy and the Italian Sommeliers Association in honour of the maestro of Italian cuisine in the Colorno Palace (Parma) on the 14th of May

Online PR News – 16-June-2010 – – Everyone has been celebrating him: his city, Milan, his friends, such as the oenologist Mattia Vezzola, who created a Franciacorta special and called it “Ottantesimato” (wordplay on “Eightieth”). Now Bormioli Rocco has added its name to the incredibly long list of those congratulating and celebrating Gualterio Marchesi, supplying its wine tasting glasses for the gala dinner held on the 14th of May in the Colorno Palace.

This event, organised by the Alma Wine Academy and the AIS, the Italian Sommeliers Association, was held to celebrate the eightieth birthday of a maestro of Italian cuisine in the true sense of the word, and included the great chef conducting a master class on the subject of “Constructing a Menu”, in the school he founded. After a seminar on “Training in the wine sector”, all those attending were served an aperitif in Premium wine glasses (Champagne model), while the Premium Rosé model contributed to enhance the table setting for the Gala Dinner with its wine tasting event “Seven great wines for seven great dishes by the Maestro”.

Essential shapes, extra thin glass, these wine tasting glasses boast forms and dimensions developed in collaboration with the sommeliers of the AIS in order to bring out the best of the organoleptic qualities of whites, reds and rosés. Made of fine crystal glass, these wine glasses are similar to crystal in their brilliant transparency, but are stronger and can be washed in dishwashers. Design and functionality combine in this collection created by another maestro of Italian style at the table: Bormioli Rocco.
