Il Borro Wine Tasting With Salvatore Ferragamo at Brix Wines
Wednesday, October 19
Fashion meets wine on Wednesday in Carefree as the namesake and grandson of the venerable fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo appears at Brix Wines. The Ferragamo family made its name in the fashion world making designer shoes worn by the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Angelina Jolie, but they're also now peddling wine from the family's Il Borro Winery in Tuscany. The tasting costs $15 per person and is from 5 to 9 p.m. — but Brix is expecting a large crowd, so you might want to get there early. Guests also can enjoy food from the Wandering Donkey Food Truck and live music. For more information, visit the event's Facebook page or Brix Wine's website.
