    Join us for an exclusive wine tasting event at Casa Belvedere

    Tuesday, March 28 at t 7 pm
    REGISTER TODAY!

    Experience the passion of an engaging and entertaining sommelier, direct from San Gimignano, Tuscany, who will share their 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 meals, or give them as gifts!
