The campaign

Welcome to the perfect match

Garda D.O.C. sparkling wines. Piave D.O.P. cheese. Both from Northern Italy, and both the exquisite result of centuries of tradition and artisanship. Together they’re the perfect compliment bringing together the sparkling freshness of Lake Garda and distinctive alpine flavours of Northern Veneto’s Belluno province.

European quality

The European Quality banner is so much more than a label, it’s about the best of all worlds—time-honoured traditions meeting today’s most finely honed production techniques—so that you can enjoy a unique, authentic taste like no other. Your guarantee of old world goodness that will have them coming back for more, again and again.

Italian passion

Italian passion is more than just a big love for life. It’s the key ingredient, and it’s on every Italian menu, both at home and in restaurants. It’s about creating the kind of dishes and festive atmospheres that add life to life. It’s about taking the time to do things right. And taking the time to enjoy them in the right way.
