If it's Tuscany you want, it's Tuscany you'll get. From the Adriatic to the Mediterrean, we'll cover Tuscany from coast-to-coast. And if
you're thinking: Wait a minute Vin, Tuscany doesn't extend to the Adriatic, you're right! We aren't rearranging Italian geography. We're actually going to
the Marche region that had a great article about it in the New York Times May 22 Travel Section, titled "Is this the Next Tuscany: A Vanishing Italy stills
exists among the hill towns of Le Marche."
After meeting at the airport in Rome on July 10, we'll travel to the Adriatic seacoast town of Senigallia, our home base for 3 nights. We'll visit some of
the top producers of Verdicchio and Rosso Conero including Sarterelli, Umani Ronchi and Garofoli as well as a bevy of cultural and culinary experiences.
Then we head to Montecatini Terme for 5 nights from which we explore the traditional Tuscan wine epicenters of Chianti and Brunello as well as the nouveau
Tuscan wine region of Bolgheri. In the past we've had lunch at Frescobaldi, Castello Banfi and Badia a Coltibuono and visits to such stellar wineries as
Felsina and Castello di Ama.
