MET Master of Wine Examines Chianti’s Natural History at Museum

As a recognized Master of Wine, William Nesto is one of the world’s foremost experts on wine appreciation and history. An instructor in the Wine Studies certificate program offered by MET’s Programs in Food & Wine, Nesto and his wife Frances Di Savino co-authored Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine, which charts the couple’s journey to Italy in pursuit of learning everything they can about the storied wine region and its beloved Chianti variety.

Nesto and Di Savino were recently invited to the Harvard Museum of Natural History to lead a discussion regarding their historical and cultural findings. Watch a video of the lecture here.
