Prosecco producer Follador has been named the official Prosecco supplier to the 75th Italian Open, the biggest golfing event in Italy.
The 2018 Italian Open will return to the picturesque surroundings of Lake Garda, for the first time in 15 years, at Gardagolf Country Club.
Nestled between the famous Rocca di Manerba, Soiano Castle and the Valtenesi hills, Gardagolf Country Club is one of northern Italy’s most prestigious courses, with the venue last hosting the national Open in 2003 when Sweden’s Mathias Grönberg claimed a two-stroke victory.
“The Italian Open is a sporting event of very high international importance, and we consider it a privilege to present our brand in a context that sees cosmopolitan guests and the best professional players in the world,” said Cristina Follador, head of sales and marketing at Follador.
“To all those who will attend the 75th Italian Open we extend our best wishes for a beautiful day of sport and friendship, with the addition of a toast.”
The tournament will be held at the Gardagolf Country Club between 31 May and 3 June.
Golfers will compete for a prize fund of US$7 million, at what is the 75th edition of the tournament.
