Antinori, Castello dei Rampolla, Fèlsina, Le Macchiole,Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, Tenuta San Guido & More
Next month, 15 of Tuscany's greatest and most historic estates land in NYC with old bottles in tow.
Antonio Galloni is one of the foremost authorities on Italian wine and he's curated a stunning cast of Tuscany's finest for a day of education, revelry and profound drinking. Antonio's La Festa Del Barolo, a celebration of the wine complete with seminars and gala dinner, has been an incredible success. He's now extending the concept to the noble wines of Tuscany.
This will be the first event of its kind and promises to be legendary. The group of winemakers, many of whom never travel outside of Europe, is just too impressive for this not to be the case.
The two-part event will take place at The New York Times 4-starred restaurant Del Posto.

The festivities are divided into two events: In the afternoon Antonio Galloni will moderate a seated tasting, Tuscany: A Study in Terroir. The winemakers will be present and the subtleties and nuances of the region’s microclimates will be explored in depth.
In the evening, the gala dinner will take place. Each winemaker will host a table and will pour an older vintage from their own personal cellar. Guests are encouraged to bring wines from their own cellars to share with friends and other diners. A group of New York’s most talented sommeliers, drawn from the city’s top restaurants, will oversee wine service.
There will also be a live auction to include a handful of rare lots of wine, including bottles from Galloni’s personal wine cellar. The proceeds will benefit The Zone at the Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai, a state of the art facility that focuses on the special needs of children coping with serious illness and hospitalization.
This promises to be a very special evening. As seating is limited, early reservations are encouraged.
