2020 Wine Tour in Central Italy

May 17 – 23, 2020

Join Don and me for an unforgettable week exploring the many facets of Tuscany and some of the surrounding regions.  This year will offer some great options for extended travel before and after the trip.

Our home base will be just north of Florence for the first part of the week.  We’ll spend one day exploring the rolling hills of Chianti and another in the neighboring region of Emilia-Romagna, home of both Parmigiano-Reggiano and Balsamic de Modena.

For the latter part of the week, we’ll base ourselves in Perugia, the capital of Umbria.  The history of the city dates back to the Etruscans.  Also known for being a mecca of higher education, the University of Perugia was founded in 1308.  We’ll travel to Montefalco and try some of the amazing wines made from the Sagrantino grape and visit some the southern wine regions of Tuscany, as well. Perugia is located just 100 miles from Rome and 90 miles from Florence, offering easy options after the tour.
