New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Select Italy is proud to present the exclusive 4-day Luxury & Wine Event of the Year. Held in Florence and Tuscany June 2-5, this package provides a one-of-a-kind experience in incredible settings with an exceptional roster of hosts. The event pays tribute to Tuscany's outstanding winemaking tradition. It takes place over the course of four phenomenal days during which attendees will experience a breathtaking sequence of wine tastings, seminars, special dinners and captivating entertainment.
Andrea Sertoli, President of Select Italy stated, "This is a never-seen-before event. One that brings to the public the best of the Tuscan Wine and hospitality industries. In addition, the Tuscan noble families and VIP attendance makes it a red carpet event that wine lovers and epicureans of all nationalities wouldn't want to miss."
Guiding spirits of this signature event are James Suckling, former Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief of 'Wine Spectator' and one of the world's most noted and influential wine critics, and IMG Artists, the global leader in arts management and a leading producer of cultural and lifestyle festivals. Founding vintners from the Antinori, Frescobaldi, Mazzei, Ricasoli, Il Borro, Petrolo and Castello Banfi estates are also slated for participation. Designed with the highest level of excellence in mind, 'Divino Tuscany' is destined to set a new standard in event creation and coincides with the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.
"The coincidence of the event with Italy's Union 150th anniversary," continued Sertoli "makes it all more exciting, as the anniversary creates the perfect frame to highlight and celebrate the excellence of the wine, the sophistication of the food and the uniqueness of the cultural activities that are part of the 4-day event."
If wine is the overriding theme, the event encompasses all that revolves around wine, too. Wineries, castles and palazzos belonging to ancient, noble families will be opened up just for attendees, and exquisite food will be served in incomparable surroundings by restaurateurs of the highest caliber, such as Giorgio Pinchiorri of the renowned Enoteca Pinchiorri. Other program highlights include an inaugural concert by world-famous violinist, Joshua Bell, and a farewell country barbecue at Sting and Trudie Styler's beautiful private villa, Il Palagio.
