Washington Women & Wine Toasts Italy
Karen McMullen co-founded Washington Women & Wine 15 years ago to bring active women and more than “a few good men” together monthly to network and enjoy fine food and wine. The group has traveled twice to France and to Northern Italy this past March. On June 23, Robin McKenzie-Smith of Best of Europe Tours and Cruises told guests at a dinner at I Ricchi of his plans for a fourth tour next April to Rome and Tuscany. He said the pace would be “leisurely” with four nights in Montecatini as a base for day trips to explore Tuscany’s treasures. The tempting menu featured a choice of several of I Ricchi’s signature pastas, pared with Italian wines.
