During last summer's Gulf Coast Connoisseur Club journey, 31 travelers were granted exclusive access to some of Northern Italy's most well-known winemakers. The group experienced a multi-course wine luncheon hosted by mother and daughter team Giovannella and Federica Stianti at Castello Di Volpaia and toured the winery cellars in Tuscany on Sept. 4, 2014. Now, Michael Klauber and his team at Michael's Wine Cellar are pleased to host Federica Stianti in Sarasota.
Proprietor Federica Stianti of Castello di Volpaia will host an Italian Wine Tasting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11 at Michael’s Wine Cellar."The Stianti family were such gracious hosts last summer as our Connoisseur Club received a grand tour of their restored medieval village and learned about the olive oil and superb wines created at their estate located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti production zone," remarked Michael Klauber, co-proprietor of Michael's On East and Michael's Wine Cellar. "After experiencing their generous hospitality, we look forward to welcome Federica to Sarasota. This is truly a special opportunity for our guests in Sarasota to taste with one of Tuscany's best!"
This featured wine tasting on March 11 is open to the public for $10 per person. Admission will include tastes of seven wines paired with Italian meats and cheeses. Reservations are required and space is limited. Click here to register online or call 941-366-0007, ext. 229 for reservations.
