We are excited to announce an exclusive opportunity to delve into the world of fine Italian wines with Ornellaia – one of the world’s most prestigious wineries.

Discover the essence of Ornellaia
Get ready for an unforgettable masterclass as Fusari, a seasoned expert in the art of winemaking, brings passion and knowledge to The Landmark London. Founded in 1981, Ornellaia has become one of Italy’s most influential wineries, recognised globally for producing outstanding Bordeaux-style blends. Its strong development in the past few decades has helped to put Tuscany’s coastal Bolgheri region in the spotlight.
An unparalleled learning experience
This masterclass offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the evolution of Ornellaia’s style and philosophy, and the ability of its wines to age in the cellar. Fusari will lead you through a rare tasting of eight Ornellaia vintages spanning four decades from 1990 to the new-release Ornellaia 2020, giving you the chance to taste and compare the nuances of these exceptional wines that have been influenced by both time and terroir.
The estate is owned by the Frescobaldi family, a legendary name in Tuscany’s rich winemaking history. Bolgheri is celebrated for producing some of Italy’s most sought-after wines. With its meticulous attention to detail and commitment to excellence, Ornellaia stands as a true embodiment of the Tuscan winemaking tradition.
