Verdenoce a Big Hit at Assumption Rocket Spectacular Benefit Auction

Claire is ready to serve Verdenoce!

We were proud to serve complimentary samples of Dumante Verdenoce and our popular La Dolce Vita at the 2013 Rocket Spectacular Benefit Auction. The Rocket Spectacular is an annual themed dinner and silent auction where families of students and alumni come to enjoy a night of fabulous food and dancing. This year’s Western theme was a sight to behold as Assumption students were decked out in ten-gallon hats and boots. The Dumante table was situated in the lobby so patrons could enjoy a sample before heading to place their bids on many of the auction items.

At times the crowd around the table was overwhelming as everyone wanted a sample of what event coordinator, Hyemi Sevening called, “the most popular drink at the event!” Dumante Verdenoce assistants Claire Sturm and Anna Brown were joined by Kelly Shaper, an Assumption dad whose passion enticed a nun to take a sample! Incidentally, she loved the Dumante Dolce Vita and came back to the table at the end of the evening for one more taste!

We would like to give a warm thanks to Hyemi Sevening for inviting Dumante Verdenoce to the Rocket Spectacular. For fans in the Louisville Metro area, we will also be participating at the Taste of Ascension were Dumante Verdenoce will join 23 area restaurants and distillers for a tasting like no other! Visit our “Events” page on for ticket information! If you are interested in having Dumante Verdenoce served at one of your events, please use the “Contact Us” form and a Dumante representative will contact you directly.
