“The choice of Pierangelo Tommasi represents a natural rotation within the association that provides the positions of presidency and vice-presidency for the participating families: this is also the expression of a united and cohesive group, each with its own style but sharing the same production philosophy”, states the outgoing president, Alberto Zenato, who in turn succeeded the past-presidents Sandro Boscaini, Marilisa Allegrini and Sabrina Tedeschi (who became president of the Antica Bottega del Vino di Verona, one of the world’s wine temples, owned by the Famiglie). “I would like to thank Alberto Zenato for having brilliantly carried out the work and activities of the association in the historically most difficult moment that our generation has experienced. I am honored to chair a group of valued colleagues and friends - comments Pierangelo Tommasi - historic companies and custodians of their territory, and to continue the path started thirteen years ago, with the project of witnessing the values that unite us and those of a unique denomination in the world. We will do this with many activities in Italy and abroad, developing profit in our companies and networking with other local partners”.
