Join Tuscany in Oak Brook for a very special night of incredible wine and fine Italian cuisine.
At 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 10, we will welcome world-renowned Wine Ambassador Beppe D’ Andrea from leading Tuscan winery Ruffino Italian Wines. Mr. D’ Andrea will introduce Tuscany diners to six hand-picked wines paired with a five-course menu designed by Executive Chef Fernando Garcia (See menu below.)
Mr. D’ Andrea joined Ruffino in 1987. After working for two years as a cellar master, he earned the AIS Professional Sommelier certification. In 1995, Mr. D’ Andrea was named Ruffino’s Global Brand Ambassador. Today he welcomes groups from all over to Ruffino’s estates in Tuscany and travels the world to “bring Ruffino wines and the Ruffino story to wine lovers around the world.”
