Divino Tuscany is a celebration of Tuscan winemaking excellence. The inaugural event to be held in Florence, Italy June 2 – 5, 2011 brought together the top winemakers from Tuscany who will promote, share and demystify their top rated wines.
James Suckling, former Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief of Wine Spectator and one of the world’s most influential wine critics, and IMG Artists, one of the leading producers of cultural and lifestyle festivals, including the Tuscan Sun Festival, are collaborating on this signature event. Together, consulting with founding vintners from Antinori, Frescobaldi, Mazzei, Ricasoli, Il Borro, Petrolo and Castello Banfi, Divino Tuscany will offer a distinctive program that highlights premium wines in one of the most dramatic vinicultural regions of the world. The unique combination of wine, food, culture and history will be experienced throughout.
In selecting the wines to be showcased in this exclusive event, Suckling reviewed his ratings over the last two decades and based his decisions on merit and high-quality winemaking. Those who know him understand his deep love for great Italian wine. Having lived in Tuscany for over ten years, Suckling has long recognized the need to create a premium wine event like Divino Tuscany.
Over the course of four incredible days, attendees will experience grand tastings, seminars, special dinners and entertainment – everything about Divino Tuscany has been designed with the highest level of excellence in mind, from the selection of wines to the locations.
