Tuscan Wine Redux for Wine On The Road

I’m in the midst of another European wine adventure and am ready to report on my first stop in Tuscany, where I’m preparing for Wine On The Road’s May 2011 tour. On my prior visit in June I took tasting notes at several wineries that will be featured through Wine On The Road, and I wanted to update you about the evolution of some of the same wines I tasted at the beginning of the summer. Check out the rest at Unfiltered, Unfined.

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 Tuscany

I’ve taken some amazing journeys to wine country all over the world, visiting beautiful terroir and conversing with the fascinating personalities who grow grapes and make wine. One of my favorite such places is Tuscany, a sun-drenched vinous heaven about two-thirds up the western coast of the boot of Italy.
