Official Wine Launch Event – “Philip”
Event At A Glance
Enjoy FREE wine tastings of the new Mazzei wine “Philip,” an extraordinary wine created to honor the Mazzei family’s great ancestor, Philip Mazzei. This wine embodies the “New World” spirit of Tuscan wine-making, best represents the revolutionary character of Philip Mazzei, and expresses the Mazzei family’s desire to pursue life, liberty and happiness.
Philip is a blend of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes carefully selected from the Mazzei’s estates:
- Castello di Fonterutoli, the historic property in Chianti Classico, producing wines since 1435;
- Belguardo Estate, acquired in the late 1990s, in the gentle hills of the Maremma region, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
The wine launch celebrates the Italian influence at Monticello and commemorates the friendship between Thomas Jefferson and Philip Mazzei. The launch event will be held at The Shop at Monticello, in partnership with the Italian winery, Mazzei. The wine will be available to the public July 4, 2013.
