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 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 .

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.
