Donatella Cinelli Colombini is one of Italy’s most celebrated winemakers. She hails from a winemaking family that has roots in Montalcino dating back to the 1600’s. As one of the few female winemakers, she has made it a point to empower women in viticulture; she employs only women at her ‘Prime Donna’ estate.  At this wine dinner, guests can learn what inspires Donatello to make Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino, Orcia and Chianti Superiore – great red Tuscan wines with passion and respect for nature.
