(Frances and Edward Mayes)
Last night I had the privilege to sip on some Tuscan Sun Wines with wine creator and best selling author Frances Mayes; best known for her book Under the Tuscan Sun. The event was a media event held at the Denver Art Museum last night and I was invited on behalf of Denver Eater.
The wine line up consists of four reds, two whites, and a Prosecco that is set to join in 2014. We enjoyed appetizers as well provided by chef Kevin Taylor.
Each wine is named after a Italian saying; the Pinot Grigio is called Pensiero or a little gift and the Sangiovese and Montepulciano blend is called Sentiero alla Casa or the path to the house. “I think the marvelous thing about these wines are their price,” explains Frances Mayes, bottles range in price from $13-$23.
