Visit to Leonardo da Vinci’s museum and birthplace.

I have just returned from a trip of a lifetime. Italy is truly God’s country, it’s my happy place. I’ve visited Venice, Florence (and a bit of Tuscany), and Rome about 5 years ago. I couldn’t wait to return. This trip celebrated Italian wines: Florence, Tuscany (Vinci, Chianti region, Montalcino), Trento, Verona. My favorite subject matter. Well that, and all the delicious food.

We really enjoyed our wine tasting at Da Vinci winery. It’s my favorite chianti to drink. Their Pinot Grigio is very nice too. They are widely distributed in the US, so it’s easy to find these wonderful and inexpensive Italian wines.

There will be more blog posts about this trip. I want to extend all of my wonderful memories of the beautiful events and of the wonderful people we’ve met along the way.
