Brassica buffs, allium aficionados, and general vegheads, this one’s for you: a dynamic vegetable-laden dinner from the hottest vegan chefs around. Join us as these meat-free maestros craft delectable, seasonal dishes for a feast bound to entice even the staunchest carnivore.

Located in Tuscany’s historic Chianti Classico zone, Querciabella enjoys international critical acclaim for its award-winning wines. Thanks to a rigorous plant-based biodynamic approach and the exclusion of animal products in both agriculture and winemaking, the wines are 100% vegan and certified organic.
