  • Wine Tasting with Italian Winery Tenuta Torciano
    7:00 PM-9:00 PM
    11/01/2022

    Join us for an exclusive wine tasting event at Casa Belvedere
    Monday, Nov. 1 at 7 pm
    REGISTER TODAY!

    Experience the passion of an engaging and entertaining sommelier, direct from San Gimignano, Tuscany, who will share his passion for wine education and extensive knowledge. During this special evening, you will sample premier Tuscan wines from Tenuta Torciano, a luxury winery in Tuscany specializing in producing fine wines for over three centuries.

    Learn how wine is made in Tuscany; the eight most important wine grapes; and how the soil, climate, and history make Tuscan wines among the best in the world. Learn how to evaluate wine by sight, swirl, sniff and taste. Unlike other wine tastings, the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano takes something seemingly elementary and turns it into a brilliant and captivating experience.

    Delicious Italian cheeses, salami, and Italian bread will accompany the variety of wines presented at this limited attendance event. You will also sample Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Truffle Olive Oil, and an Aged Reserved Balsamic Vinegar.

    Tenuta Torciano is the product of the passion and hard work of a Tuscan family for over 15 generations. Today, Pierluigi Giachi, together with his wife Luciana Cilemmi and son Emanuele Bartolomeo Giachi, carries on an ancient family tradition. Pierluigi Giachi does not like to call himself a winemaker, but rather he considers himself to be a countryman of Tuscany.

    The wines presented in this wine tasting are not sold in stores. Serve these fine wines with your holiday meals, or give them as holiday gifts!

The first two workshops will include short, vibrant readings and prompts that will help you create your own original writing on the theme, and the third is a revision workshop in which you’ll receive constructive feedback on a piece of writing you submit in advance.  

    Register for one, two, or all three workshops.

  • VENETIAN FESTIVALS: NOT ONLY CARNEVALE
    7:00 PM-9:00 PM
    11/22/2022

    VENETIAN FESTIVALS: NOT ONLY CARNEVALE
    Tuesday, Nov. 22 at 7 pm 

    The Venetian Carnevale is the most well-known festival in Venice, but there are other festas even closer to the hearts of Venetians. It used to be said that La Serenissima had more feasts than any place in Italy!

    Nowadays, Carnevale is mostly for tourists, but other events are celebrated mainly by Venetians. Please join Anita Sanseverino in discovering special traditions that are steeped in history and celebrated with that special Venetian flair! Anita’s presentation will be accompanied by her photographs from these beautiful events.
