With more than 1,000 tastings , 3,000 attendees , and 2,000 bottles sold , the event was not only an opportunity to taste the different facets of a wine that is conquering the whole world, but also a pleasant context in which to immerse yourself in art, in music and entertainment, thanks to the collaboration with Monferrato On Stage and Artàporter and all the artists who participated.
Franco Cavallero , President of the Ruchè Producers Association, expresses his enthusiasm:
<< The Ruchè Festival was born with the aim of making Ruchè known to a new audience but also, and above all, of presenting the faces of the producers who, every day, work and seriously invest in an extraordinary and contemporary wine. The Festival ends with a more than positive outcome: we achieved record numbers, achieving 30% more than last year and this suggests an ever-increasing interest in this vine, which makes us proud to say the least >>.
The event recorded a large turnout of the public, confirming the growing interest that the native Piedmont vine has been acquiring in recent years. The combination of wine and art was the fulcrum of the party: the tastings were accompanied not only by the artistic dimension of the estate, but also by works by artists selected by Artàporter, as well as by the performance of nationally renowned musicians, such as Johnson Righeira , Le 3 CHIC and Instabil Band . The event was organized by the Association of Producers of Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG in collaboration with the Barbera d’Asti and Vini del Monferrato Consortium, Go Wine, Artàporter and Monferrato On Stage.
