My liver is not ready, neither my psyche but I’m about to embark on a food and wine tour through Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia-Romagna…for 25+ people! Why am I letting you know? Well, because I plan (hope) to be sharing unique bits from the tour over the next several days either via the blog but for sure on the social media sites I’m keen on like Instagram and Snapchat so you can follow along the wine tour adventures, too!
It’s pretty exciting because the wine school I attended before moving to Florence, the Northwest Wine Academy at South Seattle Community College- where I received college credit for drinking wine, asked me to be their tour leader for their educational trip through Italy. This is the same wine school that sent me to Florence on a study abroad wine course so it’s kind of cool that 4 years later, formerly a student and now I am helping to lead their trip. However! I will still be a student, certainly I will be learning loads of new stuff and I’m looking forward to the opportunity.
The regions we will be hitting up: Tuscany (Chianti and Montalcino, obviously), Umbria (famous for Sagrantino Di Montefalco) and Emilia-Romagna (prosciutto di parma, parmigiano, balsamic vinegar and lambrusco wines)
So follow along the next 10 days to witness sheer insanity plus some scenes from the wine country, obnoxious amounts of food (you think they’ll let me just have salad the whole time?) food producers and cute little cities.
Wish me luck!
