Lorena Ascencios, Astor Wines & Spirits Wine Buyer, has invited 13 of the foremost artisanal Italian winemakers to the Astor Winemakers Invitational at Astor Center. This event will feature a Grand Tasting, where guests can enjoy current wine releases and older, more exclusive vintages direct from winemakers’ cellars. Participants can also choose to attend one of a series of Private Winemaker Seminars. The Winemakers Invitational culminates in a sumptuous four-course dinner prepared by celebrated chef Andrew Carmellini of Locanda Verde, Lafayette, and Bar Primi. In addition to showcasing Chef Carmellini’s extraordinary gift with Italian cuisine, the dinner will showcase some rare Italian wines. Please join Lorena and some of her talented friends for this groundbreaking event.
