We’re getting serious about Sangiovese! Join us for a tasting tour of Tuscany as we explore four wines produced with the Sangiovese grape varietal at our Aperitivo Italiano: Sipping Sangiovese. Riccardo Guerrieri, owner of VinSanto, will be our guest speaker for the wine tasting, which, as always, will be accompanied by Italian-style light bites.

About the presenter
Riccardo Guerrieri is truly passionate about wine and food. Guerrieri moved from Italy to Houston ten years ago to follow his wife Lynn. His involvement in the wine industry began when he moved to Texas, and he opened a wine importing company. After a few years, he joined Vinology’s team and was the general manager and wine buyer for four years. Since January 2023, he’s been working on a new project: VinSanto, a wine bar, shop and bistro located in Memorial-Houston. He is a certified sommelier and is constantly looking for hidden wine gems from around the world.

What does aperitivo italiano really mean?
An aperitivo (or apéritif) is often described as being similar to the American happy hour, but in reality, it’s so much more than that. An aperitivo is a ritual, joyous and mood-lifting. It relaxes you after a day of work and prepares you for the night to come. The aperitivo has long been a staple in Italy, and in recent years, has been gaining more appreciation around the world.
