Wine Walk to Ca’ d’Zan
March 20, 2015

On Friday, March 20, 2015, under the clearest of blue skies and cool breezes, The Ringling Estate opened to crowds waiting in line for the third annual Wine Walk to Ca’ d’Zan and to experience a not-to-be missed culinary event.
The many privileged guests were able to stroll the magnificent and alluring gardens of the Ca’ d’Zan, while tasting fine wines with delicious food pairings. A sampling of various regions were represented; Germany, Spain, France, Italy and the United States. Nestled on the shores of the beautiful Sarasota Bay, the treasured Ringling Estate is a tropical oasis with majestic banyan trees and manicured landscaping. It is the perfect backdrop for this culinary and unique experience.
As the evening wrapped up with live music, we watched the sun set over the bay. Bright stars illuminated the night and we were content to know that we will be able to return next year to experience this all over again.
We will crown this “jewel” of an event at the Ringling Museum as another “Greatest Show on Earth”.
