Sunday, September 30, 2018, tens of thousands of distinguished gentlemen in hundreds of cities around the world will wear ties and tweeds and sit on their classic and vintage bikes to raise money and awareness of prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of our charity partner, the Movember Foundation.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. He was inspired by a picture of Don Draper by Mad Men, sitting on top of a classic bike and wearing his most elegant suit. Mark decided that a theme tour would be a great way to fight the often negative stereotype of motorcyclists, linking niches of motorcycle communities all over the world.
From the Trieste Prima article "The idea of bringing this event to Trieste also comes from the idea of a group of motorcycle bikers who over the past three years have participated in the rides organized by other cities, always thinking 'but why we in Trieste with our history, our magnificent landscapes and our madness we do not try to put our name on the world list of participating cities? ' Start of the ride is the Franz Josf Stube of Aurisina Stazione, a historical location that recalls the past glories of the area when the Austro-Hungarian Empire dominated the Giuliani lands. "
At 12.30 we wait for the ride at Parovel Winery to let the participants taste our products and visit the wine cellar. Together with us there will also be the Cavana Brewery with its specialties.

And here you see a part of the crew with our !
The name Refosco (Refosc in the Friulian language) probably derives from Rap fosc i.e. dark grapes. The oldest document that witnesses the presence of a Refosco dates back to 1452 where it was genuinely referred to Refosco "maduro", a Refosco made from grapes left to dry before vinification. It was thus obtained a sweet, alcoholic, very fine wine or " fortified wine" , as high-quality wines were called in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. In addition to the sweet Refosco, a dry Refosco was also produced i.e. with no no sugar but just as fine. Thanks to its unique features, Refosco managed to stand out from the many Terrano wines intended as "local ", the result of a mixture of different grapes.
Euro Parovel Vino Terrano Refosco was also used as a blending wine to improve the quality of "ordinary negro" wines for the daily meals. In 1800 there were many varieties that went under the name of Refosco thanks to the great prestige the wine enjoyed. So much so that even a grape from Hungary was baptized "Hungarian Refosco". The name Refosco "dal Peduncolo Rosso" emerged in Udine only in 1863 when a "Grapes Fair" was held. Before this date it probably hid behind the name of Refoschino, the name by which it is still known by in some towns in Friuli. In the years 1960-1970 the Refosco grape had almost disappeared and was deemed unworthy for its characteristics of being little productive and late in bearing fruits. Fortunately today the Refosco is part of the excellence of the wine region.
