The phenomenon of the “wine wedding”, of getting married in the vineyards or in the cellar, has conquered wine lovers and romantics from all over the world. And the Italian “VIPs” are no exception, with curious stories. Like the one concerning Lino Banfi, one of the most popular Italian actors and “restaurateur”, with his “Orecchietteria Banfi”, in Rome. Where, among others, the grandchildren Pietro and Virginia work. And of the latter, the actor (born Pasquale Zagaria), will celebrate, in first person, the wedding, in July, in the Zaccagnini winery, one of the most famous in Abruzzo, of his friend producer Marcello Zaccagni, as told by him himself to the magazine “Gente”. Cellar which obviously has a particular appeal for the actors. Like Helen Mirren, one of the greatest English actresses of all time, in love with Italy to the point of buying a masseria in Puglia, who just last summer chose the same Zaccagnini winery as a travel destination, which, with its Montepulciano d Abruzzo “dal tralcetto”, has contributed in an important way to making the vine and the territory known in the world. And who, in 2008, with his “Il Tralcetto dell’Amamico” award awarded Lino Banfi himself, as UNICEF Ambassador.
