Tignanello

A Marchesi Antinori Wine Experience,  Wednesday June 26

Meat Market’s Executive Chef Sean Brasel  has prepared the perfect Italian menu to compliment an exclusive selection of wines by the renowned Marchesi Antinori winery.  Tignanello 2016 vintage will be among the offerings the guests will be savoring during the four-course pairing on Wednesday, June 26th.   Bruce Sanderson, the senior editor of Wine Spectator was quoted saying, “If there were two wines that changed the face of Tuscany, they were Tignanello and Solaia, both of which are produced by Antinori.

Fun Footnote about Megan Markle and Tignanello

Mr. Sanderson isn’t the only one appreciates this superb Super Tuscan, Megan Markle’s lifestyle blog was named ‘Tig’ in reverence to her favorite wine Tignanello. Though the Royal’s blog is no longer, she was quoted as saying: “It wasn’t just red or white — suddenly I understood what people meant by the body, legs, structure of wine. It was an ah-ha moment at its finest. For me, it became a “Tig” moment — a moment of getting it.”

The dinner will be limited to 50 seats.  Priced at $125 per person (excluding tax and gratuity) this four-course culinary experience will begin at 7 pm with a reception. Full menu as follows:

The perfect gift for moms who appreciate fantasy or elegance, or both

Though not normally a creature of habit, I find myself asking my kids for the same gift every year… their undying love for me, AND a Sequin Gift Card from each of them. I personally prefer the physical gift card one purchases at the store, as I enjoy the experience of trying on everything and counting on Martha at the Worth Avenue location to help me out. Sometimes I get lucky and run into Kim!

Your mom doesn’t have to live in Naples, Newport or Palm Beach to enjoy the fruits of Sequin!  The SEQUIN on-line gift card is a no-brainer for moms who enjoy shopping from the comfort of their homes or office.   It’s also the ideal gift for last minute decision making when you can’t choose between classic and fantasy.  Plug in a personal message, press send and let mom treat herself to the perfect gift of her choice.
