#ledonnedelvinoconvoi and Project Ganbei
Project Gambei from friends of italian wine in China to Italian hospitals. #ledonnedelinoconvoi , virtual wine tourism for winelovers imprisoned home.
Virtual wine tourism to travel with imagination waiting to be able to really do it. This is what the 900 Donne del Vino (Women of Wine) from all the Italian regions who are flooding the internet with images of their wineries and vineyards propose. Many videos of less than a minute, connected by the hashtag ledonnedelvinoconvoi who want to encourage those who are locked in their homes during the coronavirus epidemic.
Videos that convey passion for their work but especially the courage of women with a fighting spirit who are not willing to bend to the difficulties created by the epidemic. Testimonies, real, direct, of everyday life, made in a craft way by the same protagonists who speak in first person and perhaps, for this, emotional.
#LEDONNEDELVINOCONVOI VIDEOS TO MAKE VIRTUAL WINE TOURISM WHILE YOU ARE LOCKED IN THE HOUSE
Propose a virtual “escape” in the world of wine to winelovers who normally, with spring, arrived in the cellars, wine bars, restaurants with the intention of discovering great wines … And instead this year they have to stay home. A postponed appointment say the Women of Wine with confident look towards the future:”Do not give up and stay at home, we are with you and we are waiting for you soon!”
PROJECT GANBEI THE SOLIDARITY OF WINE WITHOUT BORDERS
Project Ganbei is raising funds to purchase medical supplies in China under the supervision of a medical team. As result the sanitary equipment will arrive in Italy as soon as possible through the embassy channels. Meanwhile the appeal is to the “solidarity of the world of the wine” importers, restaurateurs, Asia Pacific area managers, brokers, press and Chinese consumers … Chinese but obviously also Italian.
CHINESE WINE FRIENDS LEND A HAND TO ITALY: ERIKA RIBALDI IN THE FRONT ROW
From Wuhan to Bergamo, from Shanghai to Milan, from Ancona to Shenzhen, solidarity knows no borders. Project Ganbei is promoted by Erika Ribaldi, Woman of wine, and expert export manager, who explains it in a letter-appeal. “ With a group of terrific colleagues in these days we have given birth to Project Ganbei. We realize that the best way to create fertile ground for a productive cooperation, lasting between two realities distant geographically and yet so close in the recent past, can start from a humanitarian point of view”.
Certainly the appeal was taken up by the National Association Le Donne del Vino and by the president Donatella Cinelli Colombini: «The international network of Women of Wine, whose foundations we set up last November in Simei, begins to work and we see it in a moment of extreme difficulty like the current one. We take up the call of Erika and spread it because it will help those who are now in the front line in the battle against covid-19».
