Tips from Ferrari Trento – the Official Sparkling Wine of the Emmys Celebrate the 68th Annual Emmy Awards like the nominees, by serving Ferrari, the Official Sparkling Wine of the Emmys. Host your own Emmys party and serve Ferrari Brut, the same bubbly the stars will be drinking at the Primetime Emmy Awards on September 18. Ferrari is no stranger to awards – this is their second appearance at the Emmys and they recently earned the coveted “World Champion Blanc de Blancs” title at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships. Ferrari Trento has some expert tips for planning the perfect Emmys viewing party: RED CARPET ARRIVALS Invite your guests to dress up in red carpet attire. Stage a red carpet arrival (AKA, the corner of your family room) and have a “photographer” on hand to enhance the “step-and-repeat” experience. AND THE ENVELOPE, PLEASE... Ask guests to predict the 68th Emmy winners before the show. Have them complete the official ballot before the show starts. The guest who chooses the most winners receives a prize (may we suggest a bottle of Ferrari to take home?) MAKE IT A SPARKLING ITALIAN APERITIVO PARTY Toast the nominees with perfectly chilled, beautifully presented bottles of the Official Sparkling Wine of the Emmys. Here’s how: Chill Ferrari Brut Trentodoc in your refrigerator overnight. Before the party, place bottles in ice buckets or large chill tubs. Serve at 45°F (or average refrigerator temp.) If you don’t have enough flutes, don’t worry! White or red wine glasses showcase Ferrari Trento’s beautiful bubbly profile and aromas even more. Complete the Italian theme by making a quick aperitivo. Arrange some authentic “buffalo” mozzarella, thin cut Parma ham (the highest quality cured prosciutto), crostini and fresh olives. Or try a surprisingly fashionable pairing with Ferrari Brut: order pizza margherita or flatbreads topped with tomatoes, “buffalo” mozzarella and basil.

After raising many glasses to several sports victories, including the most recent ones conquered by the Italian athletes at the Rio Olympics, Ferrari Winery will be the official supplier for the most prestigious golf tournament in Italy. Ferrari Winery partners up with “Open d’Italia Golf” on its 73rd edition, which will see the best golfers in Italy and in the World battling at the Golf Club Milano, in the Park of Monza from September 15 to September 28. Ferrari Trentodoc and the wines of Lunelli Estates will star in the welcoming events of what promises to be a dynamic tournament, with several famous golfers that will also take part in the Ryder Cup, the most prestigious golf competition in the World, which according to recent news will land in Rome in 2022. The still and sparkling wines produced by the Lunelli Group will be served at Villa Reale in Monza, during the press conference, as well as during the gala dinners and in the hospitality areas managed by the Italian Golf Federation, under the supervision of the three-Michelin-starred restaurant Da Vittorio. As for the prize-giving ceremony of the tournament, the athletes will celebrate with a Jeroboam-format Ferrari bottle. In this way, Ferrari Winery will provide the guests of the tournament with the special Italian Art of Living that characterises its products, adding a touch of style to an event already renowned for its prestige.
Ferrari Brut NV, the wine with the longest tradition among those produced by Ferrari Trento, achieved a great success at The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships, seizing two trophies: “World Champion Classic Blanc de Blancs” and “Best Italian Sparkling Wine”. The 2016 edition of the prestigious competition organised by Tom Stevenson, an authority in the wine making industry, had already awarded five gold medals to the Trentodoc wines produced by Ferrari and, with the two prizes conquered during the gala dinner hosted on September 1st at Vintner’s Hall in London, Ferrari Brut has officially become one of the best sparkling wines in the World. After awarding prizes to Ferrari Perlé in the previous editions of the event as well as naming Ferrari Trento “Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year” in 2015, this year the judging panel of the most prestigious sparkling wine competition in the World paid tribute to the non-vintage Ferrari Brut, which was highly appreciated in its magnum version. An extraordinary success for the flagship product of Ferrari Winery, which embodies the perfect combination between Trentino’s territory and Chardonnay grapes. These prizes come as a direct result of an approach based on the search for excellence in every bottle, from non-vintage to reserve wines. Furthermore, Ferrari Brut’s triumph as best Blanc de Blancs in the World is the ultimate proof that Ferrari Winery took indeed the right direction in deciding to focus on a wine that enhances at best the features of the Chardonnay grapes grown on the mountains of Trentino, whose potential was spotted more than one century ago by Giulio Ferrari.
Ferrari Trento, Italy’s most awarded sparkling wine producer, is proud to return as The Official Sparkling Wine Partner of the 68th Emmy® Awards season. This year marks Ferrari’s second sponsorship appearance at the Emmys, which will culminate in serving Trentodoc sparkling wines to the talented nominees, winners and Governors Ball guests at the Primetime Emmys on Sunday, September 18. Ferrari will also be served to the celebrants at both Balls following the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11.
