Lanciola Wine Dinner
Thursday, May 3
Featuring Guest Speaker Giancarlo Guarini Lanciola, Owner and Winemaker
Just a few kilometers outside Florence, on the rolling hills of Impruneta near Pozzolatico, lies Azienda Agrícola Lanciola. It is immersed in the distinctive Tuscan countryside, amidst olive-groves, cypress trees and vineyards. The estate totals around 80 hectares, with 40 hectares covered by vineyards and the remainder devoted to olive groves.
