“Eternity was in our lips and eyes”. It’s one of the most famous William Shakespeare’s love quotes. Thousands of people all around the world celebrate on Valentine’s day addressing cards with Shakespeare’s verses to their loved one.
Image a romantic quote printed on the cork of a great Italian red wine to give to your sweetheart. Gerardo Cesari, an Italian winery located in Cavaion Veronese near Verona, the city of lovers par excellence, has made it possible. Thanks to the agreement with the company Brentapack of Labrenta Group which uses a modern technology to print letters and phrases on corks, Cesari had the idea to run off a William Shakespeare’s love quote on its Mara Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore. The quote “Eternity was in our lips and eyes” will be printed on this special edition of bottles created for Valentine’s Day.
Mara Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore is a full-bodied wine, very fragrant and velvety, made from Italian native grapes Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, which is perfect to pair with roasted meat.
This initiative has been possible because Gerardo Cesari supports the Juliet Club, a cultural association which promotes the history of Juliet and the beautiful city of Verona all around the world. A team of volunteers is in charge of answering every day the thousands of love messages addressed to Juliet.
