The historic Winery of Conegliano will pay homage to Heads of State with a literary work on the life of Founder Antonio Carpenè and with Pvxinvm, one of their most significant “enological works”
(Taormina, Italy) – The upcoming G7 International Summit in Taormina, Italy on May 26-27 will bring Heads of State, the Presidents of the European Council and the European Commission, and the Institutional Delegates and Representatives of the most industrialized Countries in the world to the renowned Sicilian city. As accompaniment to convivial moments at the Summit, the wines of Carpenè Malvolti, the distinguished Winery of Conegliano, will be served, provided by the ceremony of the Presidency of the Italian Council of Ministers.
Carpenè Malvolti products to be poured for attendees at the G7 Summit are examples of the Winery’s finest offerings enhancing the symbiotic and indisputable bond between the Carpenè Family and its terroir. They will include: 1868 Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G., Tarvisium Classic Method, and distilled spirits including Grappa and Brandy.
“We are so honored and proud to have this opportunity,” said Etile Carpenè, President of Carpenè Malvolti. “It is a great privilege to present our greatest selections at such a significant global Summit. We express our deep gratitude to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, which made it possible. We greatly appreciate its importance.
“We are confident that this occasion will also contribute further to the promotion of our Country, Italy, for its agro-culinary and eno-touristic excellence, in particular in the Treviso area, to which my great-grandfather Antonio Carpenè, our Founder, dedicated his activities. Through his study, research and teaching he made significant contributions to the development of viticulture and enology, in addition to founding, in 1876, the first Wine School in Italy in the city of Conegliano.”
The Heads of State and the Presidents of the European Council and the European Commission present at the G7 Summit will also be invited to discover Antonio Carpenè’s historic contribution through a biographical book which the current President, Etile Carpenè, created to express the firm’s gratitude, including in it a dedication which is very significant to him, “share History to determine the Future.” To accompany this literary work, Carpenè Malvolti will also present PVXINVM, an exclusive wine selection that best enhances the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. characteristics, and whose name – created two years ago by Rosanna Carpenè, of the Fifth Generation – utilizes on the label, for the first time, the Latin version of the word “Prosecco,” which was initially introduced as far back as 1924 by Etile Carpenè, of the Firm’s Second Generation.
This prestigious opportunity for Carpenè Malvolti at the G7 Summit recognizes the Firm for its commitment to maintaining and improving the wine-growing area of Conegliano Valdobbiadene for nearly 150 years – currently a short-term candidate for UNESCO Heritage status – as well as for the winery’s historical entrepreneurship in producing Sparkling Wines and Distillates. The Company was inspired by the intuition of Antonio Carpenè, who in 1868 first began producing “the sparkling and festive wine that until that time only the French had been able to make,” using grapes grown in the hills of the Treviso area.
The occasion is also a recognition of the brand’s historical presence in many international markets on all five continents – including the seven countries of the G7 Summit – as well as the constant promotion of their special terroir in the winery’s distribution and communications strategy, and their participation in many international events as long ago as the very first Universal Exhibitions, such as Vienna in 1873 and Paris in 1878.
The firm has been managed by the Carpenè Family since the company’s founding. Inspired by their mission of “science and conscience,” they have always preserved its ethical roots as well as the original production site in the heart of Conegliano, at the center of the historic Conegliano Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G. area, where the prestigious grapes of 100 historic grape-growers are transformed into their varied wine and spirits offerings.
“We are confident that this unique and prestigious occasion will represent another historic milestone for our business, as well as the greater world of Italian wine,” concluded President Etile Carpenè.
