Podere Le Ripi with Francesco Illy


Francesco Illy’s Podere Le Ripi produces one of the most appreciated wines in Italy on the densest vineyard in the world. The eldest son of the third generation of Italy’s famed espresso giant, Illy is no stranger to creating superior products. 

It was in 1984 when Illy’s soul was captured by Montalcino’s breathtaking landscape. 
“Beauty produces harmony, and harmony delivers quality of life to everyone. 
Here I found beauty and harmony.”

Illy’s biodynamic approach allows his grape varieties to be
a true and unique expression of the region. 

Join Francesco Illy for this singular opportunity to explore his illustrious, robust yet
elegant wines. The wines will be complemented by a five-course menu
created by James Beard Award-winning chef Mark Ladner. 

We look forward to seeing you on November 3rd, 2016.
