Marco Manero has won the Le Velette Cromobox in the TwitAsta 2011!
Marco Manero, @neromarco on Twitter, for 59 euros has won the personalised Le Velette Cromobox prize on TwitAsta 2011, which collected funds from 30th May to 5th June for the children cared for by ABIO Roma. The initiative was linked to Tweet Your Wines (www.tweetyourwines.net), an idea from a group of fans and operators in this sector, which brought together 22 companies at the last Vinitaly - including Le Velette obviously – in a wine-tasting trip selected on FourSquare. Through the check-in on the various companies a lot of fans took home quite a few bottles from among those in the competition and of course a lot more had been put aside for the TwitAsta. So a double event, in with Tweet Your Wines and then at the beginning of June with TwitAsta, which collected 1,782 euros in favour of hospitalised children in the care of ABIO Roma. At this very moment during TerroirVino 2011 (the fair organised by Tigulliovino and Vinix in Genoa, Sunday 12th and Monday 13th June), the organisers are giving the cheque symbolically to the representatives of ABIO.
A big thank you therefore to Marco Manero and all those how took part in the TwitAsta and to TweetYourWines (which continues on Twitter)! Next year we want to, we must do even better!
