Ferragamo Reception at Villa Carbone
On October 22, 2018, Dr. Michele Carbone and his wife Betti hosted a reception for Salvatore Ferragamo and his family. Salvatore’s acclaimed Il Borro estate in Tuscany produces a variety of sustainable wines, including the Rose, Chardonnay, and Rosso served during the reception. Donato Loperfido and Ian Bishop, importers of fine Italian wines at Flavors of Italy, provided the wines and introduced the Ferragamos to the fifty-plus guests at the reception. The Carbone’s friend, legendary speed skier Franz Weber, was also there, helping to create a magical evening in Honolulu.
It was a wonderful evening in which the Carbone friends had an opportunity to mingle, enjoy great food (see the menu below), and drink fabulous wines. The Ferragamos, Salvatore and Tini, were wonderful guests.
