Congratulations to Drago, winner of the Palio!
Please note that Siena will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, July 4, in observance of the Independence Day holiday. We will reopen on Thursday, July 5, regular hours.
Happy Fourth of July!
Congratulations to Drago (Dragon), the Siena contrada (neighborhood) that won yesterday’s Palio! You can watch the race in the video below.
In the photo above, you can see the Italian carabinieri (the national police) making their way around the track yesterday before the race began (image courtesy a friend of Siena’s who lives in Tuscany).
The sold-out crowd at last night’s Tuscan Coastal dinner had a blast watching the video together with owner Stan Adams as we enjoyed Chef Harvey’s food and wine director Rina’s wine pairings.
Stay tuned for details on our next “First Mondays” event (August 6), featuring a menu from the Amalfi Coast!
