February 3 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join The New York Times’s Wine Critic, Eric Asimov for an in-depth exploration of Chianti Classico, Tuscany’s famed wine region during an educational seminar. Eric’s obsession with Chianti Classico is deeply rooted and well-founded. Taste and learn about six different expressions of this Italian treasure. He has developed the renowned ‘Wine School”, a monthly column that invites you to drink, interact and discuss wine with him personally. A collection of his columns is included in “The New York Times Book of Wine,’’ published by Sterling Epicure.

During dinner, travel to the multi-faceted wine region of Chianti Classico. From his recent article in The Times “This Tuscan wine is a gorgeous expression of Sangiovese “I find a lightness, purity, and eloquence to the wines that in my mind, sets them apart…” Enjoy 8 different wines paired perfectly with a four-course menu created by Boston Harbor’s Executive Chef, David Daniels. An unforgettable experience – be prepared to join the Chianti Classico bandwagon!
