ABOUT VINIFERA IMPORTS OWNER DOMINIC NOCERINO

Dominic founded Vinifera Imports in Chicago in the late 70's. His philosophy has always been to share with the American people the best artisan wines that Italy can offer. Dominic's ability to identify the finest wines has never failed him. Among some of the brands he has imported are Gaia, Valdicava, Fontodi, Braida, Pelissero, Canalicchio di Sopra, Giuseppe Rinaldi, Felsina, Michele Satta, Brigaldara to mention a few.

Dominic has always believed that some of Italy's finest wines require patience and age to best express themselves. He has been collecting and storing many of these wines in his temperature controlled warehouses so that they are able to be purchased and enjoyed at their prime.

ABOUT DONATO SCOTTI (Executive Chef)

Growing up in the small town of Bergamo, near Lake Como, Italy, Donato Scotti's roots were planted from a young age for his future career as a chef. Now the executive chef of his own eponymous Donato Enoteca in Redwood City, CA, Scotti's dream of opening his own restaurant with true and honest contemporary Italian cuisine has become a reality. It is a place where he creates a weekly-changing menu reminiscent of his childhood days, filled with artisanal ingredients, seasonal California farmer's market produce and authentic Italian hospitality.

Scotti's approach consists of keeping dishes simple, yet delectable, and allowing the ingredients to speak for themselves, always attune to maintaining a balance in flavor. Donato has created a special Tuscan inspired menu' exclusively for this event!

This will be the ONLY opportunity to taste Krug and meet its President and CEO, Maggie Hernandez, in Northern California.

This event will include three elegant examples of Krug Champagne, about which Antonio Galloni (formerly of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) said "Over the years many of the most monumental, mind-bending Champagnes I have had have emerged from these cellars in Reims."
This event will be a wonderful learning opportunity, providing in-depth comparison between Krug's excellent Champagnes, both vintage and non-vintage, as well as engaging conversation and interaction with your fellow wine lovers. This will be an experience that we truly want to share with you, our VIP Champagne lovers, in an evening not to be missed - and it will certainly sell out, so please respond immediately to be assured of a seat.

ABOUT KRUG

Krug was established in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug, a German immigrant, who had previously learned his trade at Champagne Jacquesson. For many generations Krug was owned and managed by the Krug family. Some 40 years ago, the company was sold to Rémy Martin in order to help expand the distribution network. During this period the 5th generation Krug family members, Henri and Rémi, retained a degree of control as shareholders in Rémy Martin and guided the company. That ended in 1999 when Krug was sold to the luxury goods group Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH). An LVMH manager has been president of the brand since 2005 and a 6th generation member of the Krug family, Olivier, currently is employed as a member of the tasting committee and Director of Krug, representing the company around the world.

ABOUT MAGGIE HENRIQUEZ (President & CEO)

In addition to being the first non-French person to ever become President and CEO of a Champagne House, Venezuela-born Henriquez has held an array of influential positions during her 30 year career in wine and spirits. She also earned a Harvard degree in Advanced Management and, did I mention, she is also the epitome of style, incredibly charming and down to earth too? Yes, it's true!

ABOUT MILLENNIUM TOWER
Millennium Tower is a 58-story condominium skyscraper, the tallest building in San Francisco. It was completed in 2009 and is located just south of Market Street. It is also home to RN74, the restaurant and wine bar under the direction of Chef Michael Mina - their team also services the exclusive Club Room, where this event will take place.
