Wine Pairing (Chef Roberto Leoci and Antinori Wines)

YWS gathered with sixteen other food and wine enthusiasts from Savannah and neighboring towns to enjoy an evening of wine pairing. Chef Roberto Leoci and Aldo Rafanelli, an ambassador for the Antinori family, provided us with an evening of delicious food and Italian wines. This combined with good conversation and a cool breeze on the back patio of
