Francesco Zonin, Vice President of Casa Vinicola Zonin S.p.A and widely known for his delicious Zonin branded Prosecco, starred on the TV show, “From Italy with Love” that airs on the Cooking Channel. The show featured three American contestants who were given the opportunity to travel to beautiful Italy’s Venice and Tuscany for a chance to start their own business in the United States along with a $10,000 prize.
The three contestants competed in several wine and food competitions, learned how to live, dress, communicate, and cook like an Italian. The imaginative culinary experience was judged by no one other than Francesco Zonin himself who considered everything made from taste and presentation, to décor and technique. Some of the dishes prepared were accompanied by some of Francesco’s very own Prosecco and Castello D’Albola 2010 Chianti Classico.
Contestant’s ended their quest with winemaking techniques and food pairings at the Castello D’Albola Estate. Francesco and his colleagues selected the winner of the challenge and crowned them the truest Italian of the group.
