Charles Bove Vouvray 2008... missing some mid palate.. an affordable vouvray but truly you get what you pay for.. off dry but not a lot of acidity

Landmark Grand DeTour Pinot Noir 2008  what a lovely nose of dried fruit and mushroom.. light on the palate weight wise but man does it keep giving flavors on the  finish.. mocha and red fruits.. worthy

Sineann Abondante Columbia Valley 2008  a zin blend that seems to be going after the Prisoner buyer. juicy and mocha.. lush.. interesting

Dear Sir/Madam,

We are thrilled to announce the first edition of Divino Tuscany in Florence, Italy from June 2 – 5, 2011, an unprecedented celebration of Tuscany’s finest winemakers that will bring together the best wine professionals from around the world.

Fifty wine producers hand-picked by eminent wine critic and Tuscan wine expert James Suckling will join forces for the first time in history, in a four-day event filled with exclusive tastings, master classes and gala dinners in Florence’s most prestigious Palazzi.

Highlights will include grand tastings featuring top-rated wines from both newer and older vintages poured by the winemakers and proprietors themselves who will promote, share and demystify their wines. Dinners hosted in private Palazzi by the most well-known Tuscan wine families and estates including Antinori, Frescobaldi, Mazzei, Ferragamo, Corsini, Banfi to name a few, will provide a unique setting of access to these normally private estates.

Participants will have the privilege of attending tutored tastings led by James Suckling at the gorgeous Palazzo Capponi, complemented by his guest panelists and experts. Divino Tuscany will close with a relaxed country lunch featuring a traditional Tuscan pig roast hosted by Sting and Trudie Styler at their private villa just outside Florence, Il Palagio.

Check our website to find out more and to become a part of this highly exclusive, invitation-only event in one of the most dramatic vinicultural regions of the world.
