Tuscany is Next International Wine Tour Destination
Over the last couple of years, I’ve segued into an emeritus role at Carpe Vino and Drew is now firmly at the helm of our family business. One of my greatest joys in this transition is I’ve had the freedom get out and explore wine regions around the world. And on tours of Spain in 2013 and Provence last year, my adventures included a band of like-minded wine lovers.
I am pleased to announce that my 2016 event, in partnership with Earthbound Expeditions of Bainbridge Island, Washington, will be an 10-day exploration of the Wine Estates of Tuscany and Beyond. In collaboration with Earthbound’s owner, Matthew Brumley, we’ve nailed down a circuit that will start in Chianti and snake through Tuscany and a corner of Umbria before ending in Rome. Ten days, gallons (okay, liters) of wine, enough dazzling food to choke an Etruscan and a smattering of art and antiquities to sate the intellectuals in our ranks. It’s gonna be our Provence tour on steroids.
