Ca’ del Bosco Luminary Winemaker Dinner: Maurizio Zanella

The Nantucket Culinary and Nantucket Wine and Food invite you for an evening of decadence with luminary winemaker Maurizio Zanella. Enjoy a multi-course dinner prepared by Chef Aran Goldstein of Noah's Table Cooking School.

Co-sponsored by Calvisius Caviar, Mr. Zanella will choose the finest wine for each course. Prior to dinner, there will be a reception with wine and canapés in the cooking school where you will have an opportunity to meet the extensively travelled wine connoisseur, Maurizio Zanella. We also welcome special guest Jennifer Williams-Bulkeley, wine advisor, educator and founder Vinolytics.

Biography of Maurizio Zanella Chairman Ca'del Bosco:

Before a life spent dedicated to wine, Maurizio Zanella studied agriculture and it wasn’t until his mother acquired a small hillside property called “Ca’ del Bosco” that his introduction to the world of wine started to flourish.

In 1968, he created Ca’ del Bosco, a fine-bubbled Franciacorta and over time his brand has become one of the leading producers of this product. In the early seventies, he embraced his artistic creativity and became one of the leading figures in Italy’s wine renaissance by transforming what was a house in the chestnut woods into one of the country’s most modern wineries.

Dinner is limited to 14 people.

Menu to be released by April 1.
