We're falling into wine here at MOFAD, and we can't think of a better way to quench our thirst than delving into one of Tuscany's most famous wines. Join Jeff Porter, Italian wine educator and Beverage Director of the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group as he discusses the history and distinctions of Chianti Classico.
Guests will taste 6 incredible wines from the region in a one-hour guided tasting with Jeff, and conclude the evening with a short reception. Bring a friend and cheers to an informative and tasty evening!
