Michael Anthony's has, since its inception,
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 Wines of Le Pupille
Four-Course Wine Dinner
with special guest Clara Gentilli
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 6:30pm
(plus tax and gratuity)

In conjunction with the Hilton Head Wine and Food Festival, we invite you to join us for a four-course wine
dinner introducing you to the wines of Le Pupille.  
Fattoria Le Pupille, located in Tuscany, is a small estate
owned by Elisabetta Geppetti.  In the 1990s, Fattoria Le Pupille established a presence in the international
wine market. Critics have rewarded its quality and consistency throughout its range of wine which can be found
on the wine lists of the world’s best restaurants.  As a young owner, Elisabetta Geppetti decided to become
personally responsible for her small vineyard with one clear goal: to make great wines. The first harvests under
the supervision of Giacomo Tachis began in 1982-83. The first vintage of Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di
Scansano, under Elisabetta, was carried out in 1985.

Joining us for this special dinner will be Elisabetta’s daughter,
Clara Gentilli.  Clara is a charming and
charismatic young woman who will enrapture you with the history of her family’s winery, her mother's
remarkable story and share insight into these fantastic wines.  Executive Chef Chris Johnson will prepare a
delectable menu to complement the wines from this illustrious family.  We hope you’ll join us for this unique
opportunity to enjoy some exciting varietals of Italian wines and meet the lovely Clara!
