Road Trip – Italia 

This week William and James took a road trip from Monaco to Tuscany, stopping in on various events planned along the way! 

Beginning the journey in Monaco, William and James attended the launch of the latest Maclaren, and then made there way south along Italy’s beautiful coast line. 

Next stop, Tenuta Fertuna – to meet with our Italian distributor Gruppo Meregalli. It is their very own Tuscan wine estate, headed up but the immensely talented Mr. Paolo Rivella. 

The following day the Chase boy’s headed to Super Tuscan wine Sassicia who opened their doors for a private tour and a tasting of their three wines, Benedetti was a terrific host! Meregalli have been distributing their wines for many years and it was fascinating to hear the story of the brand. In 1994 Sassicaia was granted its own DOC (Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC), the only wine from a single estate in Italy to enjoy this privilege and is one of very few around the world. 

We look forward to welcoming all our new friends that James and William made on their road trip back in Herefordshire sometime soon!
