Wow! Let’s have Tuscany in San Diego! We have the wine-maker (and my wonderful friend) from the famous Tuscan winery, San Felice, here for a Wine Dinner at Solare. His name is Leonardo Bellaccini and we have been great friends for several years now via an intro by Bruno Cumar; and Tommy and I were just with him at his winery in April after Vinitaly. Leonardo is a very charismatic guy and engaging presenter. This is a 4-course dinner with 5 San Felice wines including their Gran Selezione and their Vigorello. $88/person includes the dinner and the 5 delightful San Felice wines. 6:45pm Dinner and 6:15pm Reception.
