when he used to leave Piemonte region to go the bigger and close Milano city in the 50s to find a public phone and call each single customer by phone to promote his own wines!

I do not know if he could imagine our “social world” and an event like this: Giordano Social Dinner held on the 28th and the 29th of September 2016!
