Meet Lia Banville of Banville Wine Merchants
We once did something a little crazy back in September of 2013: we devoted an entire event just to Italian wines. We cleared off the main floor and had 5 tables set up with 40 wines to taste. Needless to say we went way beyond Chianti and Pinot Grigio!
What was so special about this tasting was that we had a world’s famous importer joining us–Lia Banville of Banville Wine Merchants. Lia’s company is arguably the top importer of Italian wines into the country. The response was staggering and we still talk about that tasting to this day.
Eight months later, Lia was traveling with many of her winemakers during her trade show tour. She made stops in New Orleans, Washington, D.C. and New York. But she insisted on making her Boston stop at Shubie’s in Marblehead! We were flattered! This time we did 7 tables and 50 wines!
Well, Lia is back in town and she called BZ and told him to set something up! This tasting will be a little more intimate with 3 tables and 25 wines. Still an impressive showing of some of Lia’s finest wines all in one night. Please help us welcome Lia Bavnille back to Marblehead next week.
More info to come so stay tuned!
