It’s one of the world’s most popular cocktails, and now the vibrant spritz is getting its own dedicated week of celebrations, thanks to Select Aperitivo, the key ingredient in the original Spritz Veneziano. The first edition of Select Spritz Week will debut in Venice from 25 to the 28th of May followed by the UK, New York, Paris, and Sydney.
Select Spritz Week celebrations in Greece will start on Tuesday May 26 until Sunday May 28 and it will take place in selected bars all over the country.
The launch of Select Spritz Week coincides with the grand opening of Ca’Select, the anticipated new home of Select Aperitivo in Venice, which was born in the heart of the city in 1920. An exclusive experiential location, Ca’Select was renovated from an ex-industrial building with a project that saw some of the most important Venetian artisans and artists come together to create this celebration of contemporary Venetian heritage and design and an immersive experience that will allow visitors and all aperitivo lovers to learn about the brand and experience it firsthand.
Marco Ferrari, CEO of Gruppo Montenegro, says: “Select Spritz Week is born with the objective of celebrating Venice and the tie between Select Aperitivo and its city of origin around the world.
