We just found out our good friend Chiara Leonini, managing partner of Fattoria Felsina in Chianti, is going to drop by on Monday, April 24th. Felsina is, of course, one of the most important producers in all of Tuscany and their beautiful Castelnuovo Berardenga property is a pilgrimage for everyone visiting the region. We thought we’d organize a small dinner organized around Felsina’s marvelous wines to celebrate.
I can’t think of a better way to spend a Monday evening than with the charming Chiara and all her wines! Let me know if you want to attend. Please call 925.935.7780 for more information or to secure seats.
