On 29 November 2018, the first event of the La Martina Foundation was held to great success at the Ticino-based company. The LM Foundation involved around 40 leading family-run companies from the Locarno area in a visit to the Vini & Distillati Angelo Delea company in Losone. This was no random choice, as it is one of the most important family-run businesses in the wine sector in the Ticino area and Switzerland as a whole. A history filled with refined wine, love for tradition and attention to innovation was created thanks to Angelo Delea and is, today, carried forward with the same passion and dedication by his two sons, David and Cesare. During the years, the Vini & Distillati Angelo Delea company has evolved, while maintaining excellent quality, as reflected by its numerous prizes and acknowledgements. The participants were able to visit the Winery, the Vinegar Cellar and Distillery, and the Museum. This was followed by a tasting session of Delea wines in the picturesque barrique cellar, which was an outstanding chance for the guests to network.
