James Suckling & Zachys Present "Super Tuscany"
Tuesday, February 11th, 5:30-8:30PM
City Winery - 155 Varick Street NYC NY
On February 11, alongside our good friend James Suckling, Super Tuscany brought down the house at City Winery with one of the best consumer tastings we have ever done! What a line-up of producers! What a line-up of wines!
The evening featured 55 of Tuscany's finest producers ranging from famed estates of the Bolgheri Coast all the way up to flagship Super-Tuscans from some of Chianti Classicos most iconic names. What made the night extra special was that many of the producers were featuring wine selections from the 2010 vintage, the best Tuscan vintage since 1997!
We were flooded with feedback from attendees AND producers alike: "What a superb event, filled with fantastic wines!" "Amazing event, great wine, great venue." "Thanks for a fantastic and exciting tasting at City Winery. We sold many cases of wine and I’m grateful for this opportunity."
We also had the chance to debut our wine app, Buy Wine Now, which gave people the ability to load the whole tasting onto their phones, read reviews, pick favorites and place orders right on the spot...it was a huge hit!
In polling customers on the way out, we gathered that some of the favorite wines of the night were: 2008 Colore Bibi Graetz, 2011 Galatrona Petrolo, 2010 Testamatta Bibi Graetz, 2010 Castello Di Brolio Ricasoli, 2009 Giramonte Frescobaldi, 2010 Il Borro and 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Riecine...just to name a few. But the list of great wines from last night was SO LONG that it was hard for me to pick favorites.
If you were not there, sound like you missed something special?
James Suckling and Zachys are teaming up again, when we return to City Winery on March 11th for The Great Wines Of Bordeaux!
I love events like this!
All My Best,
