Join us for Wilson Daniels’ Annual

“THE ITALIANS ARE COMING!”

Wilson-Daniels’ Italian winemakers and principals are arriving in Chicago June 8 to showcase the latest releases from five of Italy's most prestigious wine growing regions: Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, Tuscany, Umbria, and Veneto.

The Italian invasion will feature the newest additions to the Wilson-Daniels portfolio including Arnaldo Caprai and Villa Russiz, together with outstanding wine estates Buglioni, Castello di Volpaia, Elvio Cogno, Prelius, Tenuta Campo di Sasso, Tenuta dei Pianali and Tenuta Sette Cieli.

Local trade and media are invited to meet these special guests and taste through a range of extraordinary wines-including some rare and older vintage surprises-that express the diversity of Italy’s incredible wine bounty.
