, President of Masi Agricola commented: "I am very grateful for this further recognition for the Masi Wine Experience initiative, through which we want to communicate the excitement that goes with our wine and our region. Then there is another reason for pride: as an entrepreneur and long-term representative of Confindustria, I am convinced that business in the Veneto is vital for our country and this edition of the Foodcommunity Awards has recognised two milestones of the economy, not only in Verona but throughout Italy: Masi with its Amarone, and Melegatti, the king of Pandoro, with an award to its young manager Denis Moro.
, Managing Director of Masi Agricola added: "The Masi Wine Experience is part of a fundamental strategy created following the IPO to give new meaning to the Masi brand by making it not only a wine brand but a lifestyle brand, coming into contact more and more directly with the final consumer. The Masi brand has always been linked to the region, as is the soul of the company itself, which has been rooted there for almost 250 years. Today the Masi Wine Experience is a successful business unit that is growing and includes seven locations: the latest is that of Cortina D'Ampezzo, ‘the pearl in the heart of the Dolomites’, where consumers from all over the world will soon be able to get to know the world of Masi up close
