In accordance with NYC mandates, proof of Covid-19 vaccination is required.

Directly from San Gimignano, Tuscany!

Experience the passion of an engaging and entertaining sommelier, who will share his love for wine education and extensive knowledge. During a warm and engaging evening at Casa Belvedere, 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 sip. 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.

    A special Author Visit 

    “Hotel of the Siren” presented by author Antoinette Carone
    In-person event on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7 pm
    A limited number of books will be available for sale at this event – a great holiday gift! 

    “Hotel of the Siren” is a work of literary fiction set mostly in Naples, Italy. Although it is the story of lovers, Naples itself is also a protagonist. In Naples, reality differs from appearance, fate operates relentlessly, and expectations are overturned.

    The lovers’ story takes place sometime in the late 20th century but before cell phones and the internet became essential to daily life. Lucy, an artist’s wife, is unexpectedly widowed. At his funeral, Lucy watches a woman wearing a green scarf stand over his grave. While cleaning his studio, Lucy discovers an airline ticket to Naples, Italy. Her husband was planning to leave with his model, Mina. Lucy uses the ticket and goes to Naples instead.

    There, Lucy reverts to her true name, Lucia. She resides in Hotel of the Siren, occupying one floor of an 18th-century building. Here she begins an affair with Antonio. There are things Lucia does not know about him, however. One is that Antonio’s father is plotting to acquire this building from its owner. The second is that Mina and Antonio are relatives.

    In “Hotel of the Siren,” Naples is central to Lucia’s journey. The way of life and the history of this ancient city frame the narrative and elucidate the culture, revealing the city’s contrasts and contradictions.
