Tuscany is possibly the dreamiest place on Earth, and it’s also home to a rich tradition of agriculture dating back thousands of years. Sono Montenidoli and Friends of Spannocchia are two groups whose shared mission is to preserve those agricultural practices while protecting the land and traditions of Tuscany. Join us to learn about these practices, as well as taste the products of their respective efforts. We will taste through a lineup of Sono Montenidoli’s beautiful wines, and have the opportunity to try Spannocchia’s freshest pressing of olive oil. An array of traditional Tuscan antipasti will be prepared as well, and we’ll learn how to make stuffed squash blossoms, the perfect crostino, and how to select the tastiest Italian cheeses.
