Cecilia Pasqua Hosts a Series of Wine Events in Aruba

A third-generation wine-maker from Verona Italy, Cecilia Pasqua, stopped in Aruba for a few days to connect with trade and consumers, and all her enthusiastic clients.

Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine is an historic winery that produces high quality Veneto and Italian wines and is one of the main players in the Italian and international wine market.

Cecilia explains she is inspired by her family’s passion, and century long history.

The history of Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine begins in 1925, when the first generation of the Pasqua brothers came to Verona, Italy, and established a new business devoted to the trade of wines from their homeland in the south of Italy, Apulia. From wine trade and retail, they later decided to become wine-growers and launched a real winery. Within a few years, with the acquisition of vineyards in the Verona area, the company progressively gained importance and visibility.

During the 60s, the second generation of the family entered the business, bringing about an opening to export and an orientation toward quality. They progressively improved their production, boasting a greater agricultural estate, an innovative vine research center, experiments with grafting techniques and vineyard improvements – above all, the family adhered to a constant quest for excellence.

In the mid 2000’s the company made a huge investment, attesting to the solid bond between the company, the family and the vineyards, with the creation of new headquarters and a production plant in San Felice, in the heart of the family vineyards.

The winery is currently run by the members of the third-generation: Riccardo, Alessandro, Cecilia and Giovanni.

During her visit to the island Cecilia hosted a trade lunch at the Ritz Carlton, Casa Nonna Restaurant inviting many professionals for a wine tasting and food pairing. In the afternoon she hosted a Meet and Greet at the H&H Fine Wines and Spirits store, in Ponton and on the following day, Ritz Carlson orchestrated a special wine maker’s dinner open to the public.

The tasting included Pasqua’s 11 Minutes Rose, Romeo & Juliet PassioneSentimento White and Romeo & Juliet PassioneSentimento red, which were enthusiastically received
