Tenuta Mara Wine Dinner at TOSCA

The story of Tenuta Mara began on a day in which a man who had already experienced many shades of success decided to embark on a new adventure, dedicating this adventure to his wife Mara.

“It was my desire from the very beginning to give the wine estate my wife’s name, because she has always given me her valuable support in all the adventures in my life.”

Tenuta Mara is not just a simple Vineyard, but a complex and complete organism because from the beginning it has adopted the holistic principles of biodynamic agriculture.

On Thursday 7th of may 2015, arete food and wine organised with the wine producer a Wine Dinner at Tosca with the kind collaboration of Chef Pino Lavarra, the manager Francesco Del Gaudio and the sommelier Sandro Brusco

With the menu Chef Lavarra presented we paired Mara Mia 2012 and we had the first tasting of Mara Mia 2013

Cheers!
