Salvatore Ferragamo’s Il Borro Winery Masterclass

December 10 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

In 1993, the family has purchased a property in Il Borro in Tuscany, roughly 45 minutes’ drive from Florence, and turned it into a luxurious leisure complex, Il Borro, with 45 hectares under vine.

Tasked with the agricultural side of the family business, Ferragamo said, “I have one twin brother. He likes fashion, and I like wine, so it worked out perfectly,” expanding that for any family members who wish to join Ferragamo empire, he or she must have a university degree, an MBA and three years of working experience outside of the group.

The younger Ferragamo planted Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Chardonnay in addition to Sangiovese, making a total of 11 wines including a sparkling wine made from Sangiovese, a ‘Pian di Nova’, a blend of Syrah (75%) and Sangiovese (25%), and a 100% Syrah called ‘Alessandro’, which is only available in magnum format.

We will taste a selection of wines from Il Borro with Enzo Tedeschi, export manager for Il Borro.

Wine Club Membership Tokens Accepted.
