Renowned Italian sparkling wine, Ferrari Trento, is to auction a selection of officially signed bottles from the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship on the F1 Authentics site, with proceeds going to Make-A-Wish® International.

Ferrari Trento is the Official Toast of F1® and the Italian luxury sparkling wine used in all Grands Prix™ podium celebrations. Ferrari Trento flows on the podium but also in the most exclusive hospitality areas during the race weekend. This year fans can take a one-of-a-kind piece of the Grand Prix home with them, while supporting an important cause.

F1® Authentics – an official licensee of Formula 1®, owned by Memento Exclusives, the UK-based sports memorabilia specialist – will be auctioning official Ferrari Trento signed podium bottles from a selection of the 2024 races, with all proceeds raised going to Make-A-Wish® International.

Make-A-Wish® is on a mission to grant wishes to children who are living with critical illness. Since 1980, the foundation has granted 585,000 wishes worldwide with that number growing every day. Make-A-Wish is working to bring happiness back into children’s lives by making wishes come true that range from going to Lapland to being a fire fighter to meeting their F1® idols.

There will be 17 Ferrari F1® Podium Jeroboam Trento Blanc de Blancs bottles available for auction this year, signed by the top three drivers from each race after the podium celebrations. The races that will take part in this project are Melbourne, Suzuka, Shanghai, Miami, Monaco, Montréal, Barcelona, Spielberg, Silverstone, Budapest, Spa, Zandvoort, Baku, Singapore, Austin, Mexico City and São Paulo.

Matteo Lunelli, CEO and President of Ferrari Trento comments: “Philanthropy is a value close to the heart of Ferrari Trento, so we are honoured to be supporting Make-A-Wish® this year. Ferrari Trento is excited for fans to take home an incredibly special piece of history while also supporting a remarkable cause and giving a moment of happiness to ill children.”

The auction on F1® Authentics for all the bottles is live and will close shortly after the respective race weekend, giving fans the chance to celebrate the winning.

Fiona Kearney, Vice President of Fundraising at Make-A-Wish® International says: “We are thrilled by the generosity of Ferrari Trento and extremely grateful for their support. Make-A-Wish has a vision to grant the wish of every eligible child, and our partnerships with companies like Ferrari Trento are essential to ensuring more children who are living with a critical illness have a wish and are given the opportunity to replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.”

F1® Authentics is the home of official F1® memorabilia, hosting both an online shop and auction, where fans of the sport can get their hands on incredible collectables found nowhere else. Items are also certified using F1® Authentics’ NFC authentication system, ensuring what you buy is the real deal.

“We are proud to be supporting the Make-A-Wish® foundation, an incredibly worthy cause. To have a signed collectable is a unique and rare opportunity for fans – let alone signed by multiple podium winners,” comments Barry Gough, CEO and Founder of Memento Exclusives and F1® Authentics.
