Attendees will enjoy Chianti, Brunello, Carmignano, and super-Tuscan red from producers such as Felsina, Villa I Cipressi, Il Borghetto, Due Mani, and Podere Forte. A seated event, guests will enjoy the wines both during the seminar and afterward, alongside savory treats.

Mr. David Weitzenhoffer
After serving as beverage director at Lidia Bastianich's superlative Felidia restaurant for a number of years, David Weitzenhoffer vanished on walkabout. A year and a half later David returned with a small but smart portfolio of Italian wines from producers that had either disappeared from the market or had never been imported before. Fast forward to 2012, and Weitzenhoffer's Acid Inc. Selections has become one of the go-to books in for high-quality Italian wines and other gems from France and California. One of our favorite speakers, David has the rare ability to both instruct and engage the listener without pretension—he's someone you'd like to have a beer with, if you weren't already sharing a sublime bottle of wine!
