For the first time in Arizona, Chef Lisa Dahl is bringing Salvatore Ferragamo (namesake and grandson of the venerable fashion house) to Sedona for a rare and exclusive winemaker dinner on Oct. 20.
Coming all the way from Tuscany to Sedona, Ferragamo is CEO of the Ferragamo family’s agro-leisure business which includes Il Borro Wines.
Paired with five courses from Chef Dahl, Ferragamo himself will take guests on the incredible journey of his family’s wine legacy. A place of rolling hills and lush farms rising to the Apennines, the Ferragamo family winery is located within a village name Il Borro where the wines are made with a passionate respect for nature and embrace the essence of the surrounding verdant territory, giving each wine its own distinctive character.
Limited seats are available and a quick sell-out is expected. The dinner will be held at Chef Dahl’s newest fine-dining restaurant, Mariposa Latin-Inspired Grill, which is nestled on a scenic bluff overlooking panoramic views of Sedona’s red rocks.
