Someone once said "life is too short to drink bad wine" and we couldn't agree more. We are looking forward to our wine dinner next week featuring some absolutely delicious Italian wines from Mazzei Winery. To make the evening a little better, we've invited Giovanni Mazzei, a 25th generation owner of the winery, to speak about his family's wines.

The Mazzei family has been growing wine for more than 600 years with the same core values embodied from day one. To 'promote local vine varieties as an expression of the identity of the region, in respect of diversity and nature, via sustainable agriculture and improvements mindful of the delicate hydro-geologic balance, in order to prevent soil erosion and maximize water reserves in the region. All of this in order to be able to hand the land intact to future generations.’  And after handing this winery down for six generations, this is an incredible accomplishment.

This is a wine dinner that you will not want to miss. Here's a preview of what you can expect on October 4th.
