Dream Vacation Series!
Whichever way you get to Tuscany – fly into Rome and take a train, fly into Pisa or Florence and drive or any combination thereof – driving through Tuscany is breathtaking. Even the Italians will sometimes ask – Are the roads paved? Do you have cellular connections? (Yes, many, and yes, mostly). But it is like stepping back centuries into some medieval fairyland. The rich, golden sandstone, practically tailor made for the dusty olive trees, cypresses and gorgeous vineyards, astonishes you every time you see another iteration of castle like towns and houses on hillsides, nestled in a profusion of oleander and bougainvillea.
And the magic continues through to the food and especially the wine! Tuscany has been known for its wine for hundreds of years. Many of the Castelli have been continuously producing wines since the 14th and 15th centuries.
In this class, we will explore the wonders of Tuscan wine – from the coastal areas of Bolgheri to famed hills of Chianti Classico, from the storied vineyards of Montalcino to the northern history-drenched slopes of Florence.
