Tuscan Wine Party With Capezzana Winery

A Tuscan Wine Party: Leone Contini Bonacossi, the heir to the Capezzana Winery in Tuscany will be flying in to Denver and bringing his family’s wines for our tasting. Capezzana the “King of Carmignano” on the hills overlooking Florence, is the birthplace of Super Tuscans. For 12 centuries, this winery has made some of the finest wines in Italy. The winery is also known for their olive oil which you will be able to sample along with their cooking school in the heart of Tuscany.

We will be pairing Capezzana wines with passed appetizers
