Badia a Coltibuono Wine Dinner at Max a Mia, Avon

Badia-a-Coltibuono-EDITby Brian Mitchell, Corporate Beverage Director, Max Restaurant Group

I am very pleased to announce a fabulous opportunity to experience the wines from the famed Tuscan producer Badia a Coltibuono, which has been making wine since the Middle Ages. For over one hundred and fifty years the farm has been run by the Stucchi Prinetti family which cultivates organic grapes in the 100 acres of vineyard located in the heart of Chianti to produce Chianti Classico, the “Super Tuscan” Sangioveto and Vin Santo del Chianti.

Our special guest for the evening will be Emanuela Stucchi Prinetti, who along with her siblings owns and runs the winery.  We are very pleased to have her at Max a Mia to present her wines along with the cuisine of Executive Chef David Stickney, of Max a Mia.Emanuela-Stucchi-PrinettiMax A Mia Presents
