One Big Family: Carpineto’s Annual Dinner

The success of Carpineto began with a passion and dedication to wine of shared by both Antonio Mario Zaccheo and Giancarlo Sacchet. We had a vision which sparked a deep friendship and created a bond among our two families for over 50 years.

The international success Carpineto found was due in great part to the support of a key collaborators who day after day, year after year remained by Carpineto’s side, guaranteeing quality throughout all its stages.

Every year, we at Carpineto celebrate our friendships with these exceptional people with a dinner worthy its guests. On July 12, we all gathered at the Montepulciano winery for our “company dinner”, but more than a simple corporate event, we like to consider this a dinner among family and friends perfect to unwind, feast on great food and of course to drink some of our best wines.

A dinner together also gives us the opportunity to embrace those we have collaborated with in the past, those who never miss an occasion to toast to old times and entertain guests with stories and anecdotes of the past.

Thanks to the pleasant weather, we were able to celebrate the evening outdoors with a pre-dinner aperitif hour over a Brut Rosé. The evening then continued indoors, inside the estate with a buffet feast of buffalo mozzarella, grilled vegetables, a fine selection of cheeses and Tuscan cured meats, all of which were accompanied by a Vermentino and Farnito Merlot Valcolomba, the fruits of our very own production.

But the undisputed star of the night was of course the Florentine T-bone steak which was served with our Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione and various other special wines such as Poggio Sant’Enrico 2004.

The dinner continued on into the night accompanied by laughter, dessert and spumante in order to have a final toast over bubbles before parting ways.

We are incredibly happy to have spent such a lovely evening together with everyone is makes up the extensive Carpineto family, making us truly unique. We thank each and everyone who attended and would like to publicly express our gratitude for all your support once again.
