It’s that time a year again: summer means spending time with good friends and sharing great wines and meals together. And what better way to celebrate summer than with the foods and wines of Tuscany?

In case you’ve never met or tasted with our resident Italian wine maven, Dr. Jeremy Parzen, Ph.D., this is the perfect opportunity to break bread with a dude who travels to Italy every year in search of the country’s top bottles (his Ph.D. is in Italian literature, btw).

Know your Sangiovese from your Vin Santo? Dr. Parzen will be talking about his recent visits to the fabled land of Tuscany and sharing tasting and pairing notes with guests.
