If You Were a Wine What Wine Would You Be?

People ask me this question all the time, and it’s a lot more fun to answer than “What is you favorite wine?” That one never garners a satisfying reply, but when it comes to personality, wine has plenty.

I asked soccer player, Claudio Marchisio.

Not in person, but it was almost the next best thing. Thanks to good people at Greetzly, I received a video message from my favorite footballer and donated money to a children’s hospital in Milan. That’s right, Greetzly has created a revolutionary platform for philanthropy that feeds on our celebrity worship. It’s pay-to-play stalking for a good cause!

If I were a wine I would be a Barolo.

Claudio Marchisio Sent Me a Video Message.

It’s simple process.

  • First you choose from a host of celebrities who have volunteered their time and privacy in the name of a cause or charity of their choosing.
  • Then, you pledge the minimum donation.
  • You send a message to your celebrity crush or role model. And wait.
  • If your celebrity replies in 24 hours with a personalized video that is yours for life, they charge your card and everybody wins!

Claudio Marchisio Would be a Barolo. This is why.

Piedmontese born and raised, Claudio went for a local pairing, the king of wines and the wine of kings, Barolo. But he doesn’t stop there! Claudio Marchisio took this wine pairing challenge very seriously.

I age well, like Barolo. I’m very intense.

I agree 100%. Here’s to you Claudio, doing your part to make the world a little better.
