Wine and VIPs: from Winston Churchill to Richard Gere
Red, white or rosé, in spite of its nuances, it is impossible to resist good wine. Whether for an aperitif, to taste alongside a particular menu or for a toast at the end of a meal, a bottle of wine is always appreciated… Even by VIPs!
From Richard Gere, a famous Brunello di Montalcino enthusiast, so much so that a few years ago he even decided to produce his own ad hoc line, to Michael Douglas, admirer of Spanish viticulture, even actors, singers and politicians don’t turn their noses up at a glass of good wine or, even, champagne.
In fact, we mustn’t forget Pol Roger Winston Churchill, a favourite of the former prime minister of the United Kingdom. It may have been for its notes of cedar, ginger and white pepper, or for its mineral scent, but Churchill was a true fan of this champagne. It has a strong, persistent and robust personality, so much so that it makes a good investment, as well as a modern luxury product.

Even American computer scientist Mark Zuckerberg, the most “2.0” celebrity of all, has never hidden his appreciation for Italian wines.
