WHO ARE THE SUPER TUSCANS? Tuscany is synonymous with wine but it didn't always have the illustrious reputation it has today. It took a special group of individuals to rebel against the rules to produce wines that put Italy on the wine map. This is the story of the Super Tuscans, but not as you know it.
From the discovery of Brunellos to the rise of Super Tuscans all these changes have altered the wine landscape of Chianti today and arguably lifted the bar across the region. Journey with us as we compare some of the top producers from Biondi-Santi the ‘father of Brunello’ to Galatrona, the ‘Petrus of Tuscany’, these are some of most interesting winemakers who have shaped and continue to influence the region. Who will be your favourite? Will it be the classic Chianti or the king of wines, Brunello? Or the outcasts who rebelled against all the rules?
Immerse yourself in the wine and stories of these remarkable producers that are changing the Italian wine landscape one glass at a time. Enjoy eight premium Italian wines over a five course banquet while we tell you the incredible story behind Rise of the Super Tuscans.

Great selection of diverse samples from a single region! It was both surprising and refreshing. Attila made the event too with his stories and anecdotes. He clearly has a wealth of information! Really looking forward to the next one. The Three Kings will be tantalising." Daniel
"Thank you for making tonight not boring!" - Steve
"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.
Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.
Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening." - Sarah
