Europe, Food + Wine, Italy
April 23-30, 2016
I just returned from a week in Tuscany, traversing the gorgeous green and yellow patchwork of the Val d’Orcia, Tuscany’s UNESCO World Heritage area renowned for its Brunello and Vino Nobile, as well as it’s fabulous properties. I was lucky enough to stay in a few and tour some others, while fitting in wine tasting to practice for my upcoming WSET Level III course. Not bad for a week’s work. Below are some of my more wistful scenic shots, though sadly none of them quite do it justice. Tuscany, and really, all of Italy, is impossible to capture in an image. It’s not just one single sensorial experience – it’s all five of them, at maximum tilt. And that is why I will return as often as I can, forever.
