Fisar and Slow Food on a visit to Le Velette Estate
Our estate was host on Saturday 14th May to one stage in the festival "il Territorio, il Vino, la Vigna" ("The territory, the wine, the vineyard") organised by the Slow Food group and the Fisar section of Orvieto. Corrado Bottai, head of the estate as heir to the now more than a hundred year old family tradition of Le Veletti, took the guests on a visit to the cellars and the estate to enable them to really take part in the work that every day is done to get the desired results.
"We are very happy to be among the leaders in this Slow Food and Fisar enterprise" commented Corrado Bottai, "after the positive experiences in the international level Fairs at Merano and Verona, it was important for us to have the appreciation of local judges, our fellow citizens.They are the prime customers to win over for a company that genuinely wants to be linked to the territory. The large numbers of those present, I believe, is good evidence of how we are seen by the others who work the land in this area.
