#ThrowbackThursday – Vini e Capricci honoured by Italian Distillers Corporation

“Sometimes a short walk down memory lane is all it takes to appreciate where you are today”

Fond memories of when Abraham has been inducted as a Cavaliere della Corporazione degli Acquavitieri Italiani (Knight of the Italian Distillers Corporation) of the region of Asti, Italy back in 2014. The investiture took place in the Distillerie Berta cellars, among the hundreds of oak barrels of grappa.

“Hails from the island of Gozo, Malta. Abraham became involved in distribution and catering in 1994, after having run his mother’s food store for several years. In 2013 he opened Vini e Capricci and with it a new philosophy: educating his clients on the art of food and wine”.

In his address before inducting Mr Said as a Cavaliere, the late Gianfranco Berta, who in that time was the Grand Master of such Corporazione said: “You come from Gozo, a very small island in the Mediterranean, of which you are an ambassador. Gozo is a little known, yet fascinating island. The sea and the land are stupendous, the cuisine is excellent, but more than anything the people are welcoming, and everything is perfectly pitched at enabling visitors to relax. And you are like Gozo, opening the door to your concept. Your place is not simply a seller but an appreciation of its products. Whoever enters Vini e Capricci finds a world waiting to be learnt and known.”
