Tuscan Wine & Olive Oil – MAY 15 2017
This is a unique opportunity to sample wine and olive oil produced on the same estate in Italy – San Quintino, in the Tuscan province of Pisa.
The evening will be hosted by Gaia Massai, a trained olive oil and wine sommelier whose family have owned and operated San Quintino since 1967. Complimentary regional food pairings will be provided by Chef Luciano Schipano.
- Structured extra virgin olive oil and wine tastings (20-30 mins each)
- A meal consisting of traditional Tuscan dishes, including some of Gaia’s family favourites
- Discussion of terroir, varietals and production practices that give olive oil and wine their unique qualities
And because this is a small event you’ll have the opportunity to mingle with Gaia and Chef Luciano between courses.
