KENWOOD, CA (June 29, 2023) – Muscardini Cellars is pleased to announce their upcoming Italian-inspired events happening on Saturday, July 15, 2023.

Golden View (https://goldenview.it/en/) is a truly exceptional Italian restaurant located steps away from Ponte Vecchio bridge. Unlike most Italian restaurants in Italy whose wines are typically Italian, Golden View serves over 450 wines, with over 380 wines from Italy, 67 wines from France, one from Spain, two from Chile and now featuring two from Sonoma, California!

Michael Muscardini is now back in Sonoma and he invites guests to join him in experiencing wine country the Italian way at Muscardini Cellars events happening on Saturday, July 15.

Afterwards guests will dive into an elevated wine and cheese pairing that highlights the unique characteristics of Zinfandel. The event will conclude with guests engaging in a collective plein air painting experience, right in the heart of Verasion when grapes on the vine achieve the color and sugar levels they need before the harvest picking season begins. The experience is $75 for General Public and $65 for Wine Club Members; the price includes the vineyard tour, tasting flight, cheese pairing, canvas and paint. Reservations can be made on Tock.
