Kentlands Photography Cafe is partnering with Siema Wines to announce our very first wine tasting event--and it's going to be fantastic! Join KPC on Thursday February 10th at 6:30pm as we welcome Francesco Pinedar of Il Borro and taste his very unique and organic wines from Tuscany.
Time & Location
Feb 10, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM Gaithersburg, 309 Main St, Gaithersburg, MD 20878, USA
About the event Since 1993, Salvatore Ferragamo, together with his father Ferruccio, have been responsible for conserving the Il Borro estate historical heritage but have also transformed the property into a 5-star, zero carbon footprint, Relais & Châteaux. This 1000-year-old medieval village has been painstakingly restored from ruins, and its agriculture has converted to certified organic farming, thus producing world class wines with a unique concept of terroir. Take a journey with us to the heart of Tuscany where we will learn of the "art" of traditional wine-making methods and taste the most beautiful reflection of its fruits. Il Borro features one of the oldest cellars in Italy, where one of the first ever Chianti wines was produced, and today the magic of winemaking continues with passion and commitment. Il Borro wines have slowly risen to the top of critics’ charts, with Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate singling out the winery for praise on multiple occasions, writing: “I can't think of many vintners with the courage and the means to apply such a spirit of creativity and entrepreneurship to their wines.” We will taste: Il Borro Lamelle Chardonnay Il Borro Rosé Il Borro Pian di Nova Il Borro Borrigiano 2018 (Red Blend) Il Borro Rosso Super Tuscan 2017 (New French Allier Oak Aged) Light snacks will be provided to accompany the tasting. Tickets are required for this event so please purchase at
