Italy, the Wine Regions
We are gearing up to share with you our amazing 21 days discovering Northern Italy.
In late September and early October of last year, we spent 3 weeks exploring Northern Italy. While we were there, we explored some of Northern Italy’s famous cities. Driving through the countryside, we stopped and met with vignerons. We sipped wines, amazing wines and often were able to speak with the people who grew the grapes and made the wines. Our senses were wide awake, tasting foods unique to each small region.
Oh, and the beauty! Ancient castles, green rolling hillsides, and villages, each with a church whose bell told us what the time was.
We traveled from Milan to Lake Garda and, of course, visited all the Northern Italian cities that I know from Shakespeare: Verona, Venice, Padua, Mantua, and Florence.
Our visit finished in the astoundingly beautiful cities of the Cinque Terre.
We will be sharing all of this with you. Including in-depth visits with Winemakers, overviews of regions, and of course, the wines.
Stay tuned for our video series, as well as the story behind each of these regions. (You know I am ready to fill you in on all the geeky stuff!)
