Scenes from the Amici dinner (and preview of the Sassicaia dinner)

What started as one of Austin’s best-kept secrets has now become one of the River City’s hottest tickets. The wine dinner series at Siena Ristorante Toscana isn’t just about great wine and food anymore: it’s about a wonderful group of wine and food lovers who connect to pair some of the world’s most famous and celebrated wines with Chef Harvey’s extraordinary menus.
Last night’s dinner was hosted by Jim Jiabia (above) of Amici Cellars, one of our favorite wines here at Siena.
The next dinner in the series will feature two of Italy’s most famous winemakers, Piero Incisa della Rocchetta of the celebrated Tenuta San Guido (where Sassicaia is made) and Alberto Chiarlo of the iconic Barolo producer Michele Chiarlo.
The dinner will be held on Monday, September 16, 2013, and like all of our dinners, it’s sure to be sold out.
We’ll be announcing the details and opening up reservations soon. So stay tuned!
If you’ve ever wanted to taste Sassicaia — one of the most famous wines in the world — this is your chance to taste with the current generation of the family who makes this historic wine.
