In his family memoir Piero Antinori reveals the passion, tradition, and love of craft that have driven twenty-six generations of vintners: from the first ancestor who signed up to the winemakers guild in the fourteenth century to Antinori’s own three daughters, poised to carry this most celebrated family of artisans into the future.
But The Hills of Chianti is about much more than wines. At its heart the Antinori story is about “Tuscan-ness”: a connection to the land, an appreciation for good food and drink, and the quintessentially Italian love of hospitality that make this one of the world’s most inspiring and memorable destinations.
You’re invited to join us July 23rd for our monthly book club meeting for discussion of The Hills of Chianti: The Story of a Tuscan Winemaking Family, in Seven Bottles.
Our book club always meets on the 4th Sunday of each month at 6:00PM, to discuss great books over a bottle of wine! We recommend reading the book in advance to join in on the conversation. This is a free social gathering, all are welcome to attend – but guests must be 21+ to drink. RSVP on Facebook to Save the Date!
