Evening at the Castle – Chianti Tasting

Tuesday, December 1

5:00-7:00 pm

Dear Friends,


Please join the Boston University Women’s Guild for an Evening at the Castle, on Tuesday, December 1 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.


We are very pleased to welcome back Italian wine experts, Bill Nesto and Frances Di Savino, as our guest speakers. Bill and Fran will provide a preview of their forthcoming book on Chianti Classico.  In their new work, they tell the untold story of this historic appellation located between Florence and Siena.  Refreshments will be served, and guests will have the opportunity to sample a number of examples of Chianti Classico.


Bill is a Senior Lecturer in Boston University’s Elizabeth Bishop Wine Resource Center and is one of only 38 Masters of Wine in the United States. Frances is an attorney who has a background in medieval and Renaissance Studies. The couple are co-authors of The World of Sicilian Wine (University of California Press, 2013) which won the André Simon Book Award in London for 2013.


This event is free to members of the BUWG and $20 for non-members. Please bring check or cash for payment.

Registration is required.  All members of the University community are welcome to join us.
