Throughout the course of the evening, guests will receive glasses of Centine – an approachable Tuscan Red Blend – and San Angelo- the leading Tuscan Pinot Grigio served with foods that pair well with them.

About Banfi

Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy’s foremost enologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased an historic winery in Piedmont specialized in the production of sparkling wines.
