Prince Albert, Princess Charlene with Diana Krall at Monaco Red Cross Ball

Posted August 11, 2014 by Celina Lafuente de Lavotha

We were all wonderstruck on entering the hall of the Sporting in Monaco on Friday, August 1, 2014, where the fashionably dressed ladies and tuxedo gentlemen were given the White Carpet treatment with a large and bright red cross signaled the way to the high-profile and mythical event of the year, the Monaco Red Cross Ball, with mirrors and screens everywhere adding to the allure of the evening. It was certainly the place to be and be seen for the 850 guests who visited each other at their table in a convivial atmosphere, but the buzzing and chattering stopped and everybody stood up for the arrival of the Prince and Princess to inaugurate the 66th edition of the glamorous Red Cross Ball that Prince Albert presides.

Bodega Nanni: A Family Tradition

Posted October 12, 2013 by Rudi Goldman

An insightful story of a passion for natural winemaking by a small Argentine producer with over a century of family tradition. My wife and I first discovered the delightful taste and aromas of Torrontes wine in the cafes and restaurants on the square in the sleepy village of Cafayate, Argentina. Comparing the various Torrontes from local producers, although it was a difficult choice, we decided that the Nanni Torrontes had the most appeal to us. This dry, but fruity wine’s aromas provided a delightful nose and surprising finish.

“Looking to discover what made Bodega Nanni’s Torrontes so special, I decided to make a short film about them. What I discovered was a family with a local winemaking tradition that dates back over one hundred years.”
Videographer Rudi Goldman
