International Women’s Day
This Italian holiday became popular in 1946, on the first March 8th following the end of World War II, when Italian feminists chose the mimosa flower as a symbol of sensitivity, strength and sensibility.
La Festa della Donna continues to be a serious day of reflecting on the political, social and economic impact of women.
Please join us and share some wonderful Italian Foods and fine wines.
Tickets are $125.00 per person and tax deductible.
Villa Italia was founded in 1989 by Lorenzo Scarpone, who also founded the San Francisco Slow Food chapter in 1990. Lorenzo is a staunch advocate of small-scale, sustainable agriculture and hands-on artisan winemaking. His vision for seeking out some of Italy’s finest estate producers is earning Villa Italia a national reputation as one of America’s premium Italian wine portfolios. Villa Italia’s goal is to import wines that offer uncompromising quality, and which best reflect the personality of their regions and to provide superior educational information and customer service to restaurants in order to promote loyalty to Italian wines, culture and way of life to supporters.
