Etruscan Food & Wine: The Banqueters of Ancient Italy

Purchase tickets

Seats are limited!

The Etruscans were an ancient civilization of people who lived in the modern-day Tuscany area of Italy, thriving from the 9th to the 1st  centuries BCE.  Their influence on ancient Roman and European culture was profound.  The Romans inherited many cultural and artistic traditions from the Etruscans, such as temple design, religious rituals, winemaking, and gathering friends and family for large, outdoor banquets.

Join us for a fascinating look at the Etruscan culture with one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field, Lisa Pieraccini.  Lisa is the project director for the Del Chiaro Center for Ancient Italian Studies at UC Berkeley.  She’ll give an informative lecture with visuals, as she highlights the dining and drinking customs of  this fascinating culture.

Chef Stefano Masanti will bring the Etruscan banquet table to life by creating a dining experience using many of the same ingredients and techniques used by the ancient Etruscans.  This will be a fun and delicious educational experience!

When: Sunday, September 10th, 2017
Time:  11:30am – 3:00pm

Chef Masanti, assisted by his chef de cuisine from his acclaimed restaurant in the Italian Alps, Il Cantinone, will prepare a five-course dinner that is the ultimate Italian gastronomical experience. It will feature dishes from the regions of Italy renowned for their outstanding food, including Toscano, Lombardia, Piedmonte and Veneto.

THE ROCKET MAN SHOW: The Biggest Production Ever Hosted By A Winery!

Winner of numerous music industry awards, this 90 minute show is the USA’s #1 full-time 70s and 80s Elton John Tribute Band and sets the standard for world-class entertainment. It’s a reenactment of an early Elton John concert with all the classic onstage antics, 100% live instruments, and flashy grand pianos. Rus Anderson, who embodies Elton John at his prime, even wears his actual glasses, jumpsuits and boots from 1973, as well as his Swarovski-laden tuxedo from 1984. V. Sattui is flying in the band from Florida for this one show that will take place under the big top in the middle of the vineyard!

Whisper the Secret Password and Jazz the Night Away in a 1920s Speakeasy!

Our barrel rooms will be transformed into an “authentic” speakeasy, complete with small tables, dim lights, private rooms hidden behind curtains, and secret passwords for special wines. You’ll enjoy luscious desserts, small plates and dancing to the music of the Mirage Band. In over 18 years as the resident band at the legendary Tonga Room at the Fairmont, the Mirage Band developed a loyal following with their catchy dance tunes, smooth jazz vocals and signature sound. Still a Nob Hill favorite, they are now the house band for the Top of the Mark at the Mark Hopkins. Our award-winning port and Madeira and cigars will be available to the gentlemen, and the ladies, too, on our terraces under the stars.
