been instrumental in developing and promoting
unique culinary events here in the South Carolina
Lowcountry. This has led us to the formation of
programs we have offered that highlight the many
foods and wines of our Italian ethnic heritage as
well as many other well noted culinary
regions of the world.
Over the years we have hosted many wine
maker dinners with very well known and
respected winery owners and winemakers such
as Koerner Rombauer, Ferdinando Frescobaldi,
Heidi Barrett, David Ramey and
David Miner among others.
Our familiar wine tastings in our specialty Italian
market have introduced many wine enthusiasts to
more esoteric and enjoyable wines. Our annual
events such as our Christmas Eve Feast of the
Seven Fishes and Winter Truffle Dinner have
become renowned and anticipated each year.

|The Lunelli Group presents
Cantine Ferrari and Tenuta Castelbuono
Four-Course Wine Dinner
Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 6:30pm
$75 (plus tax and gratuity)
The Lunelli Group is one of Italy’s most respected producers of fine wines. The family entered the wine
business when Bruno Lunelli acquired the small but exclusive winery owned by Giulio Ferrari in 1952.
Giulio had a dream of creating a wine in Italy inspired by the very finest French Champagne. He did so in
1902, producing very few, extremely select bottles at a prohibitive price, but which were still never enough
to satisfy the demand of wine lovers. You may never have heard of Italy’s most significant sparkling wine,
but at 110 years old, Ferrari is Italy’s largest, oldest and most celebrated producer in the Champagne style.
Within Italy, Ferrari is everywhere – the toast of the presidential palace and of Italian fashion icons, movie
stars and sports heroes; but outside of Italy, Ferrari has remained relatively scarce until now. With the
recent globalization of their brands, today Cantine Ferrari is already the top-selling sparkling brand in the
wine shop at Eataly in New York City.
In addition to Cantine Ferrari, the Lunelli Family branched out to other wine-making regions in Italy, most
notably Umbria. In 2001, they were looking to expand beyond the Dolomites of their home region and fell
in love with the distinctive character of Umbria and her unique grape, Sagrantino. Tenuta Castelbuono was
born with over half of their vineyards dedicated to Sagrantino.
Guest Speaker Max Giacomini with Ferrari hosts this very special event which pairs the wines of the Lunelli
Family with the cuisine of Executive Chef Chris Johnson, recently recognized as one of the top chefs of the
south by Best Chefs America’s regional guide to dining. Please join us for what will be a memorable evening
