Long before the actual opening, which was announced at 9:30 a.m., numerous fans of Lara Gut-Behrami were waiting at the entrance to our visitor center. Among them was Beatrice Simon, Finance Director and President of the Government Council of the Canton of Bern.

In a cozy round Daniel Bloch and Lara Gut-Behrami looked back on their longtime cooperation, and had to smile when Lara told about how she had to repeat “Ovviamente” over 100 times for a Ragusa TV spot! Afterwards, Daniel Bloch presented Lara with a hazelnut tree as a gift for her loyalty to Ragusa and gold medal at the Beijing Olympics,. This tree is the same  variety we have planted on our land in Georgia.

Afterwards, Daniel Bloch and Lara Gut-Behrahmi were able to test the new video game in the world of experience: Incorrigible vs Incorrigible, a game with incorrigible hazelnuts that will be available in 4D from the end of May.

Before Lara Gut-Behrami led a chocolate atelier with the lucky winners of our contest, she took the time to sign hats, ski helmets, notebooks, autograph cards, or T-shirts of her big and small fans.
