SANDRO MORELLI, owner of Marbella’s Villa Tiberio is to raffle one of the rarest bottles in his cellar at a starting price of €4,200 in aid of Cudeca. The 1973 Romanée-Conti Grand Cru will be auctioned during a charity gala to be held at his restaurant on Sunday, March 6.
Decanter considers that “Among the 100 wines which it is necessary to taste before dying, three of the ten first would come from the Domaine of Romanée Conti.”
Sandro said: “if I can help someone in life, rather than just think of the prestige of the restaurant, however beautiful this bottle of wine may be, the profits of its sale might wipe away some tears.”
Cudeca founder Joan Hunt said: “I was thrilled that he is having a special evening for Cudeca, that he is auctioning off the wine, and donating half of the €70 cover price as well.”
