Italy, the National Association Donne del Vino, established in 1988, aims to promote the knowledge and culture of wine, through the contribution of experiences and knowledge of women engaged in different but complementary sectors. Women who have a professional experience linked to the world of wine are admitted to the association, therefore: producers, restaurateurs, sommeliers, winemakers, journalists, bloggers, communication and marketing managers of wineries.
Linda Ronzoni and Silvia Gottardi are two great women passionate about two wheels who call themselves the “CICLISTE PER CASO”, make a stop at the Bottega headquarters in Bibano di Godega, during the long bicycle ride that is taking them from Bari to Milan.In Italy Linda and Silvia have already traveled the Milan-Catania route in 2016, while this year they decided to ride from Bari to Milan, to complete an ideal “Tour of Italy on the trail of Alfonsina Strada”, in homage to the one woman who participated in the Giro d’Italia for men in 1924.
The two cyclists, not just by chance, have some well-known companies on two wheels: Milan-London, the legendary Carretera Austral, between Chile and Argentina in the far south of the Latin American continent, the Grizzly tour, 4,000 km long the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Mexico.
The arrival is scheduled at around 17.30 at the Bottega headquarters, where they will be welcomed by Monica Lisetto and a representation of the Women of Wine, headed by Alessandra Boscaini, regional delegate of Veneto. A visit of the Bottega structure will end with a toast based on Prosecco Docg, to anticipate the next stage that will lead the two cyclists to Feltre, crossing the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, recently included in the Unesco World Heritage list.
