On Tuesday 22 May 2018, at the Charles Rhein de Menton stadium, the World Stars Football Match took place, the now-classic benefit football match between Italy’s Formula 1 drivers and the Star Team led by Prince Albert of Monaco. Once again, the renowned Champagne houses had to yield to the prestigious Italian wines, and we are proud to be the Official Wine Partner this year too of this great event, with our Rocca Sveva selection wines and Settecento33 sparkling wine.
The start-off kick of this exceptional match was at 6.30pm; in Italy, as every year, the game was broadcast direct by Sky Formula 1 Hd.
At the conclusion of the event, our wines were in the spotlight at a gala dinner and at an ultra-exclusive party at the celebrated Jimmy’z Club, reserved for the racing drivers and a select group of the Prince’s friends.
«Our wines were once again the stars of a prestigious event that garnered great press – commented Bruno Trentini, General Manager of Cantina di Soave – the appreciation we received does honour not only to us, but to the entire Italian winemaking community. Quality is quality, whether French or Italian, and it is our duty as wine producers to do all we can do in our power to increase that quality».
