We are thrilled to be able to invite you to join us for an exclusive New Season Extra Virgin Olive Oil and wine tasting hosted by our very dear friend, Countess Beatrice Contini Bonacossi,  family proprietor and international ambassador for Capezzana.  

Capezzana, situated in the Carmignano zone to the west of Florence, is owned and run by the Contini Bonacossi family, the latest in a long line of owners. In fact, in the archives in Florence they discovered a contract for the rent of vines and olive groves at Capezzana signed in 804.

 Today, the responsibility for ensuring the continuation of such longevity lies with the fourth generation of the Contini Bonacossi family, with Beatrice looking after all marketing and communication aspects and her sister Benedetta in charge of winemaking. Franco Bernabei is their consultant winemaker, and his contribution and presence has given the wines additional focus and personality.

 The estate has 80 hectares of vineyard and 30,000 olive trees, all of which are farmed organically.

Countess Bonacossi will take you through an intimate evening tasting the new season freshly pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Capezzana along with their unique wines paired with our beautiful dishes.
