Wine Tasting

April 11 @ 6:00 pm PDT


Ciao, my friend! Get ready for a first time MWFA event that will bring the Tuscan countryside to Venuti’s Ristorante on Thursday April 11th. Join us and the 300 year old Tenuta Torciano Winery Estate from Tuscany, as we enjoy a culinary event you won’t want to miss. Invite your friends, colleagues, and family members to join us for this unique Wine School event that will create lasting memories.

All of the Torciano Wine School Wine Instructors actually work at Winery, in Tuscany, during the rest of the year and between harvest and the growing season and will provide an authentic Tuscan experience.

Pierluigi Giachi, president of Tenuta Torciano Winery near San Gimignano says, “Our Wine Instructors have a genuine passion for wine education, exceptional people skills, and extensive wine knowledge. And, as you know, the products that they will share with you are exclusive: they are not sold in any stores, anywhere in the world. They can only be purchased during a visit to our Winery in Tuscany, at one of our Italian Wine School Events, or through our Website.“
