Wine On The Road heads to Italy and France!

On Monday I head out to Tuscany and Piedmont in Italy and then Burgundy in France to tour the very estates and sample many of the same wines that will be featured on upcoming Wine On The Road tours. First we'll explore Tuscany and focus on the wines of Chianti Classico and Bolgheri (home of the Super Tuscans). We’ll also spend time in Lucca, a historic walled city west of Florence. This expedition will be offered twice in 2011: 5/4/11 – 5/14/11 and 10/16/11 – 10/26/11. Please go to www.wineontheroad.com/tour_tuscany.php for more information .

Wine On The Road in Piedmont

If Tuscany is a garden then Piedmont is a jungle, still beautiful but not quite as civilized. The hills are steeper and the woods a bit deeper, but that doesn’t make this part of Italy any less interesting from a wine point-of-view. Far from it, Piedmont is home to several varietals that lodge near the top of many wine lovers’ lists.
