We are thrilled to announce that Italian wine importers Nicola and Whitney Savignano of PSP Imports will be hosting a wine tasting event for us in their gorgeous event space located at their company headquarters in Beverly Farms. They will be pouring a highly curated selection of Italian wines from their exquisite portfolio. Join us on Thursday, August 18th, from 5:30-7:30 PM!
PSP's motto, "Life is Wine. Wine is Life", demonstrates their core belief that we are inextricably connected to Mother Nature through wine. While wine is first and foremost a product of its terroir and is subject to the vicissitudes of weather, it is the guiding hands of human beings that assist in the transformation of grapes into wine. A winemaker is many things: scientist, artist, and steward of the earth whose products not only enhance food but also contribute to the local culture. Wine is indeed a celebration of life!
Born and raised in Rome, Italy, Nicola Savignano has lived in the US for nearly 30 years but maintains close ties with his family in Italy. He and his brother, Giuseppe, own Tenuta Santo Pietro, an agriturismo and vineyard in Pienza, Tuscany. Nicola started importing wines from Tuscany in 2012 and has grown the US business to encompass a portfolio of more than 200 wines from Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Argentina, Chile, and the United States.*
Whitney Savignano worked as the first female speechwriter for Boston Mayor Tom Menino in the 90s, then as a freelance writer and partner in the renovation and launch of Tenuta Santo Pietro. Whitney spearheads PR and marketing at PSP, focusing on their website, social media, and client communications.*
