Barone Ricasoli : The History & Future of Wine

  • Vessel Liquor 1609 Fort Street Victoria, BC Canada (map)

The name Ricasoli has been linked to wine since 1141, when the Brolio castle passed into the hands of the Ricasoli Family. Join Francesco Ricasoli, the 32nd Baron of Brolio, as he shares highlights from the nearly 1000 years of research that has gone into his family’s award winning wines. Barone Ricasoli will be pouring special highlights from his portfolio for a small group of wine enthusiasts.

Brolio has always been a prime place for innovation and experimentation. It was here that Bettino Ricasoli, in search of a “sublime wine”, invented the Chianti formula in 1872, after three decades of patient research and meticulous experiments, a compromise between art, passion and science.
