Hello Janine – thanks for your Forum post, and I would be glad to help out. Other Forum members may have some suggestions, I’ll post your question to our Twitter and Facebook feeds as well.
You’ve picked a great time to travel, May is perfect. Can you tell me a little about your travel & wine preferences?
- Will you be flying into Rome? Milan? If Rome, the best area for your eno-gastronomic tour would be north of Rome in Tuscany, most likely the Chianti, Brunello & Vino Nobile areas.
- Would you like to do a self-guided tour of wine producers, meaning visiting the wineries on your own schedule, or a guided tour?
- Would you be willing to rent a car for your trip? This affects which wine producers you can visit and taste wines. Some have tasting rooms in the cities, but most are in the countryside.
- Do you have any specific food interests or limitations? Are you okay with meat, or are you vegetarian?
With a little more info I can help recommend a home base you can use to explore the food, wine and culture in a specific wine-making region.
