French Awards Recognize Wine Book by MET Instructor William Nesto

Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine, a history of the fabled Italian wine co-authored by Programs in Food & Wine instructor William Nesto and wife Frances Di Savino, was the only book penned by Americans to win an award at a prestigious Parisian wine conference this year.

The jury of the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) bestowed Chianti Classico with the 2017 Special Mention Award in the “Monographs” category. The honor recognizes “the best works published over the past two previous years which provide an original and relevant contribution, with an international significance for the vine and wine sector,” according to the organization.

Nesto, one of only 356 certified Masters of Wine in the world, teaches in MET’s Wine Studies program. Learn more about the OIV Awards here.
