It has been quite the bumper harvest this year in Tuscany. Hardly a day goes past without one winemaking friend calling to celebrate a great vintage or calling to ask whether we have an empty container so that they can make more wine… for Charlotte too space has been a huge headache- but what a great vintage it will be!

And what a vintage to celebrate our twenty years at Potentino. To think back on what it looked like then. The rooms full of rubbish, the loggia falling down, the roof leaking… but it was a building so full of warmth and wonderful energy… Do come and help us celebrate all the hard work that has been done, particularly by Charlotte and Mum but also by all of the volunteers that helped plant the vineyards and clear them of stones, that helped paint the walls and find all the olive trees in the olive groves that were so covered in undergrowth you couldn’t see them…

I really hope that you can make it….

Renowned food archaeologist Farrell Monaco will be preparing a Roman Feast  for Dinner and ex-River Café chef, Avinash Shashidhara will make a classic Potentino Lunch. Come to both!

Lunch will be cooked by Avinash who was instantly a great friend when he was introduced to us a few years ago when he was working at the River Café. He now runs his own Indian Pop-ups in London. A must-taste!
