It was a huge honour when my best friend, Claudio asked if he could marry at Palazzo Tronconi Vineyard and it was a year ago today he tied the knot with his beautiful wife Alessia.
Building works at the new winery had almost been completed - all but the terrace, 24 hours before the wedding we were still laying the surface.
Despite this, I never underestimated the bride Alessia, ‘Le Chef Clochard’s’ ability to coordinate a visually stunning wedding, her attention to detail was flawless. Her natural styling suited the surroundings perfectly, understated elegance. As she floated around the guests in her sweeping vintage style gown with flowers in her hair, she well and truly belonged. As for my best friend Claudio to see the happiness in him made all the blood, sweat and tears worthwhile!
Cocktails of Palazzo Tronconi biodynamic Vermouth were served up, hand made organic cheese was provided by Casa Lawrence and Chef Leonardo’s sundried tomatoes and courgettes from our kitchen garden drizzled with Palazzo Tronconi olive oil made for an appertising starter to a carefully selected menu of seasonal local organic ingredients.
We did it, we all tied the knot! For not only was it a celebration filled with joy and happiness, a declaration of love and commitment, it was also the christening of Palazzo Tronconi’s Winery and Restaurant. There are so many people to thank my friends and family and to to everyone who worked so hard to make the day happen, our head Chef Leonardo Grimaldi, the sous chefs, waitresses, bar staff, but most of all the greatest thanks to my best friends Claudio and Alessia, for putting their trust in me.
Congratulations once again Mr and Mrs Conforti
love, peace and happiness
I'll do it all over again, so if you want to get married on a vineyard contact me
