Please be a part of us for a really special Monday night occasion on October 2nd upstairs in the Ferry Building Port Commission Hearing Room from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant, Lyra Wine Imports and A16 will have the great honor of welcoming Salvatore Ferragamo for a presentation of his Il Borro wines from Tuscany, Italy, paired with delicious small bites created by Chef Nicolette of A16 Restaurant.
Salvatore is the namesake grandson of the groundbreaking and innovative Italian shoe designer, Salvatore Ferragamo, who opened his shoe enterprise in Florence in 1927. With the expansion of his repertoire into clothes and handbags, Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. went on to change into the main luxury goods model it is as we speak nicely after Salvatore’s dying in 1960. In 1993, one in every of Salvatore’s sons, Ferruccio, bought the historic Il Borro property in Tuscany as a household residence. After spending years rejuvenating the vineyards and renovating the cellar, Ferruccio’s son, Salvatore, now runs the forty five-hectare property, producing delicious Toscana IGT wines.
Final 12 months, our Ferry Godmother, Debbie Zachareas, visited Il Borro, met Salvatore, and naturally came residence with some new Ferragamo shoes and the want to share this charming and proficient winemaker with the remainder of us. Her good buddy Shelley Lindgren, who options the wines on her award-profitable listing at A16, fortunately agreed to co-host this spectacular evening. Salvatore will walk you thru every of the wines in a sit-down format in the Port Commission Hearing Room.
