What do Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Chianti have in common? All three are almost certainly the most famous names with a birthplace in Tuscany and Chianti is the focus of the Vintages March 7, 2015, release.

Based around the Sangiovese grape, Chianti is more popular than ever on a global scale and is prized as one of the worlds most elegant and food-friendly red wines. Join Guild Director Sean O’Regan to taste and learn what makes these wines work so well at the table and to discuss the best food pairings to accompany them.

The secondary feature of this Vintages release looks at some of the outstanding wines coming out of British Columbia that should find a home in your cellar.
