Tenuta degli Dei: Lecture and Wine Tasting

Lecture and Wine Tasting


Tenuta Degli Dei is a winery near  Panzano in Chianti.  Degli Dei has been owned and operated by the Cavalli family since the 1970s, though it didn't produce wine commercially until recently.  Originally the family were more concerned with breeding horses, a feature of the estate that continues to this day.


The estate was originally bought by the fashion designer Roberto Cavalli and it wasn't until his son became interested in winemaking in the early 2000s that the winery was established.  It has quickly built a fine reputation for great Tuscan red wine.


The Tenuta Degli Dei portfolio consists of a Chianti Classico DOCG as well as two IGT Toscana wines produced from Merlot, Alicante, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot  -  all of which we will taste at this event.
