With all the amazing restaurants in Miami it is nice to find an exquisite foodie event that is unique. Get ready for this marvelous experience of theater, Italian food and some of the best wine in the world! Tickets are limited and will sell out, so do not wait too long to jump onboard. Toscana Divino, the premiere modern Italian restaurant and wine bar located in the heart of Mary Brickell Village, is proud to announce a unique one-of-a-kind wine dinner in celebration of ancient Florentine winemaker Antinori’s 630th Birthday! Join us in rediscovering how the Florence Renaissance influenced and shaped the world’s modern cuisine through a wine dinner theatre performance featuring Catherine de Medici!

Since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member of the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence, the Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine – that’s over six centuries! Thorough twenty-six generations, the family has always directly managed the Marchesi Antinori, maintaining, unaltered, a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated.

Catherine de Medici will bring the Antinori Wine Dinner to life as she interacts with guests and tells her stories of how she brought modern cuisine to the world. She’s said to have taught the French how to eat with a fork, and introduced foods and dishes such as artichokes, cakes, cream puffs, custards, ices, parsley, pasta, puff pastry, quenelles, scallopine, sherbet, and truffles. This performance will be accompanied with Renaissance pieces performed by renowned classical guitarist Paul Martin. Chef Billy Devlin and Andrea Marchesin will create a sophisticated dinner with a modern take on some of the great contributions Caterina de Medici brought to the history of international cuisine. Each course was created to be a perfect complement to Antinori’s famous wines.

The Antinori Wine Dinner will be held on August 26th at 8:00 p.m. and cost $100 plus tax and gratuity. For more information, please call 305-371-2767 or visit http://www.toscanadivino.com
