Recently, I attended Ruffino’s 140 year anniversary at Emily West Village. Beppe d’Andrea, Ruffino’s Global Brand Ambassador welcomed guests and chatted with them as well. Guests could enjoy Ruffino Prosecco, Ruffino Sparkling Rosé, Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio, Ruffino Modus, and Ruffino Reserva Ducale. Each wine varietal carries a distinct, memorable flavor. We also enjoyed seasonal spritzers made with Ruffino Prosecco. The wines paired perfectly with Emily’s pizza choices such as The Grammy, Madre, and Vodka Classic- basil. We all mingled and enjoyed chatting about the Ruffino wine portfolio.
Beppe spoke about the Ruffino wines and how the brand has preserved its heritage but also welcomed new creations. For instance, Ruffino Reserva Ducale is deeply rooted in the brand’s history while Ruffino Sparkling Rosé is a relatively new wine for the brand. As Beppe mentioned, “Innovation today must be tradition tomorrow.” The wines are truly remarkable and the brand’s 140 year history is impressive. What an outstanding evening!
