Join us as we host Bill Nesto, Master of Wine, and Frances Di Savino, authors of the recently published book, Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine, bring the story of the true Chianti to Hilton Head Island. Interspersed between tutored tastings of Chianti Classico wines from different terroirs, Fran and Bill describe their adventures researching their ground-breaking and authoritative book. The Chianti Classico appellation stretches across high hills between Florence and Siena. Its scenic beauty obscures its turbulent history known as the Chianti wars in which producers from throughout Tuscany jousted among themselves for the right to call their wines Chianti. Join us for this remarkable tour of Chianti and its Chianti Classico wines. Attendees will receive a signed copy of Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine signed by the authors.
In what can only be described as a “perfect pairing” for a wine dinner, we combine the experiences of Bill Nesto, Master of Wine, and Frances Di Savino, authors of the book, The World of Sicilian Wine, with the talents of Chef Linda Lockman who studied at the Famed Anna Tasca Lanza cooking school, which is situated on one of the largest estates in Sicily along with the family’s Tasca d’ Almerita winery. Seats for this dinner, which will be an experience you will tell your friends about for years, and are very limited due to the intimate location which is famous for its fabulous sunsets over the inter coastal waterways. Attendees will receive a signed copy of The World of Sicilian Wine signed by the authors.
