The Wine Tasting Event “”Aperivino, The Wine is on the Table” was successfully completed on the 10th March 2018 at “Le Palaie” Winery, Peccioli, Tuscany. 

Guests  came to enjoy the Top 5 Wines of the  “Le Palaie” Winery in combination with: local products, an English conversation with Adrian Setright of the “New York Academy”, Pisa and the musician Stefano Matteucci. Guests appreaciated the event and despite the bad weather they discovered the colours and flaours of Tuscany and explored its beautiful vineyards and rolling hills. 

The Wine Tasting  involved the presence of the following 5 Top Wines

It was my second Wine Tasting Experience with the charming “Le Palaie” Winery,  and I was very happy with their positive reviews in their web site: Le Palaie News. 

Hosting a wine Tasting Party was a great way to do something fun, classy, and different with my  friends and other guests coming  from Pisa’s province thanks to the Event sponsored on Social Media. A bit of knowledge, and the willingness to try something new was what I first needed to realize something like this. In the job of Sommelier (Wine Tasting Expert) I never stop learning, growing and building up my experience that goes on with the AIS of Lucca ( Italian Sommelier Association ) and with all the Tuscan Wineries and Wine Lovers. 

I would never been able to run all this Incredible Event alone, so my Special Thanks to: 

Enjoy it !
