Category: Wine TastingMeet Italian Winemaker of Fattoria di Petroio

Tonight from 6-8 pm, Pamela Lenzi, owner of Fattoria di Petroio in Chianti, has flown in from Italy and will present her Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, and Olive Oil.  Chianti. Pamela is originally from Seattle, but now lives in Rome with her husband, Gian Luigi Lenza.  Their small estate is located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, nestled in the heart of Tuscany’s beautiful Chianti hills, just a few miles North of Siena.
The historic origins of this property may be found on the ancient medieval road between Siena and Florence which passes directly in front of the main villa and consequently “put Petroio on the map” as an important strategic place between the two cities. For this reason it is possible to find remains from various eras in time which testify to how Borgo Petrojo has always been inhabited long before it became the property of Luigi Pallini in the eighteen hundreds.To learn more about the Fattoria di Petroio, click here.
