About Piero Incisa della Rocchetta

Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, a third-generation winemaker who hails from an acclaimed family lineage, is currently working with his family’s Tenuta San Guido wine estate located in Bolgheri, Italy. Incisa manages and oversees the commercial distribution of the family’s primary brands – Sassicaia, Guidalberto and Umbrian Estates – in the domestic U.S. market.

The grandson of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, the creator and proprietor of Sassicaia, one of the most renowned Italian wineries, and nephew of Niccolo’ Incisa della Rocchetta, who currently manages the family’s winemaking enterprises, Incisa spent his childhood on the family estate in the Maremma district of Tuscany, privy to the exclusive centuries-old winemaking and vineyard management traditions to which he now claims his own expertise.

Upon completing his undergraduate studies at the prestigious Florimont School in Switzerland, Incisa worked briefly as an account associate at UBS in Geneva before setting out on the fulfillment of his lifelong dream to be a winemaker himself.


In 1999, Incisa moved to California to pursue a degree in Economics at Pepperdine University, and then later returned to Italy where he managed the day-to-day operations of two family wine estates in Umbria – Titignano and Salviano – which are owned by his mother, Nerina Corsini Incisa della Rocchetta.

Shortly afterwards, in January of 2000, Incisa again returned to the United States to pursue a Masters from New York University which he completed in June of 2003.

Now a resident of United States, Incisa divides his time between New York City, Italy and Patagonia, where he has begun a very limited production of his own Pinot Noir. This very high quality vintage, rendered from vines planted in the rich Patagonian terroir in the early 1950s, is expected to yield no more than 1200 bottles in its first production, coincidently the same yield his grandfather made in the first vintage of Sassicaia. The new label, called Bodega Chacra, became available in early 2005.

Linda McMahon For Senate

Brian –

Connecticut is looking for a Senator who is ready to rein in Washington's out-of-control spending so that we can create a climate in which small businesses can grow and create jobs. Those are the issues that really matter.

That's the focus of our new television ad, which began airing statewide last week.

It's time to shake things up in Washington and start putting people back to work. That won't happen if we elect another Big Government politician.

Watch: Regular Job

Please share our new ad with your friends on Facebook.

All the best,
Linda

FIRST COUNTY BANK DONATES $3500 TO GREENWICH ARTS COUNCIL

-- Earmarked for Arts Education and This Year’s Sand Blast Event --

STAMFORD, Conn., June 28, 2010 -- This year marks the first time First County Bank and its foundation have donated money to the Greenwich Arts Council. The $3500 donation is being used for an enhanced arts education program serving low income families and to help support this year’s July 10 Sand Blast sand sculpture festival being held at Tod’s Point.

“First County Bank and First County Bank Foundation are proud to donate money to the Greenwich Arts Council and this year’s Sand Blast event,” said Rey Giallongo, president and chief operating officer of First County Bank. “Our Greenwich branch at 59 Mason Street has been looking for ways to help strengthen its community involvement and this is the perfect venue for our branch personnel to roll up their sleeves and be creative with their customers. What better way to enjoy a day at the beach than making sculptures in the sand with your children.”

“The Greenwich Arts Council is very excited about First County Bank’s involvement in our organization. This money will help expand current and future art programs serving low- to moderate-income families who might not have access to arts education,” said Paul Master-Karnik, executive director of the Greenwich Arts Council. “We look forward to partnering with First County Bank and its foundation on other initiatives as well.”

The Greenwich Arts Council’s perennially popular Sand Blast, sand sculpture festival, will be held once again on the broad Greenwich Point beach. Sand Blast is a fun family event for all. There is no specific theme for sand sculptures and participants are encouraged to indulge their imaginations enjoying the experience of creating art in the sand.

The Greenwich Dept. of Parks and Recreation, the Arts Council’s longstanding partner in this event, will co-host this year’s festival. The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 10, from 1:30-4:30 p.m. (Rain date is Sunday, July 11, at 2:30.) For rain date information, participants should call the Greenwich Parks & Recreation Activities HOTLINE at 203-618-7650.

The Greenwich Arts Council was founded in 1973 as part of the Town of Greenwich’s plans to celebrate the nation’s Bicentennial in 1976. It all began with an exhibition of outdoor sculpture by contemporary American artists and led to the determination that there was a need for a Greenwich Arts Council to provide year-round arts programming for the community. The fledgling organization grew from one that was all volunteer to one that progressively added professional staff and many new programs over the years.

The Greenwich Arts Council promotes the arts by nurturing artists and building audiences; bringing the arts to the community and the community to the arts. For more information about this event or other Arts Council activities, call 203-862-6750 or visit www.greenwicharts.org.

First County Bank, headquartered in Stamford, Conn., is an independent mutual community bank with 15 branches in Stamford, Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk and Westport offering deposit products, mortgages, trust and investment services, business banking services and online banking. First County Bank has assets in excess of $1.3 billion. For additional information, please visit www.firstcountybank.com.

Picking up todays' paper (6/28/10), I looked to see how the "Grennich Time" reported on the Gay Pride Parade in NYC yesterday. It stated the article to be on A8. I looked, Obits. I looked thru the whole paper, no such article appeared ANYWHERE. "ALL the news that's fit to print....when it's news WE want you to know about"
