Master of Wine Bill Nesto Nets Cookbook Award

Programs in Food & Wine instructor and certified Master of Wine Bill Nesto, who teaches in the MET Wine Studies program, and co-author/wife Frances Di Savino were feted last month when their book celebrating the history of the modern wine appellation known as Chianti Classico was named a winner at the 2017 Gourmand International World Cookbook Awards.

Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine explores the history of Italy’s Chianti region and its signature wine. It became the only entry from the United States to win in the “Drink Special Awards” category during the ceremony, which was held on May 27, in Yantai, China.
