Santa Giulia Wine Estate, Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

A visit to the best winery of the trip: little Santa Giulia in Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy. In addition to the DOCG brunello, their IGT rosso was the best - not to mention the homemade pasta with meat ragu sauce and top-notch local pecorino and the farm's meat specialties, capicola, prosciutto and lombo.

Siena, Italy, and Fattoria di Corsignano Agriturismo

My second trip to beautiful Tuscany, namely, Fattoria di Corsignano agriturismo near Siena, Italy. Wonderful weather, great wine and food and fantastic hospitality. There is truly no place like it on earth!

Cheese Importers in Longmont: French Bistro in Colorado

Cheese Importers in Longmont, Colorado, was a surprisingly wonderful European experience, smack in the middle of the northern Front Range! In addition to a huge selection of local and imported cheeses, you can have lunch at the bistro or a drink at the bar. Worth every effort to get there from Denver!
