Last spring I traveled to Tuscany with Nel Centro General Manager, Daren Hamilton and our Wine Director,David Holstrom as guests of the Lenzi Family, owners of Fattoria di Petroio Winery. There we met Diana Lenzi, their young chef & winemaker who we invited to come to Nel Centro this fall to cook a traditional Tuscan dinner to complement her delicious wines. This is a terrific opportunity to enjoy authentic recipes of traditional Tuscan family cuisine along with the stellar wines of this famous region. We would be honored to have you join us.
