In 2008, we launched the limited edition of a tribute wine called Ferruccio Favretto as a celebration of the 60-year-existence of our winery.
A month before the launch, we offered a bottle to a cousin of ours who lives in San Martin de los Andes, and who was at that moment visiting the Upper Valley area. My cousin knew it was a wine that was not yet on sale, so, he decided to put the bottle in his home safe, so that nobody would touch it or break it
What happened was that the following week, a group of burglars broke into his property. and among the many stolen items, they also took our bottle of wine, which of course had also been reported. After several police raids at the homes of potential suspects, the burglars were captured, because our bottle of wine was found in one the houses:the N° 0001. Of course, empty!
