    Il Palazzone in Montalcino, Tuscany with Laura Gray

    in Travel

    Imagine yourself strolling amongst the manicured rows of grape vines bursting with this year's harvest for the Brunello to be bottled and set to age for 5 years.  This is the dream of so many of us and Laura and her husband Marco are living the dream.  To be fair there are many others that work hard every single day, year round to make each lovingly crafted bottle of some of the world's most delicious and sought after wine, Il Palazzone's Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.

    Join Laura and I as we talk about dialy life at the winery and how to arrange a trip to visit Il Palazzone while you're in Italy.  We'll talk about some great local places to eat or stay while you're nearby as well as other great day trips near the winery.

    You can find their delicious wine today at Italian Wine Merchants and have it shipped directly to your home to enjoy while you listen to the show.

    Visit their site www.ilpalazzone.com to learn more about the team that makes this wonderful wine, the estate, and how to arrange a visit while you're in Tuscany.  Be sure to read their wonderful blog too.  Lots of great insight about wine, living in Italy, and they even bust a few myths here and there.

    Let's all tip a glass to Laura and her husband Marco, and of course the owner Mr. Richard Parsons and the rest of the Il Palazzone team for making such a great wine and sharing some other their secrets with us on the show.

    Gianni Stanghellini of Walk About Tuscany

    in Travel

    my name is Gianni. I own my small tour company. I am an experienced guide and travel agent.

    if you are looking at my website certainly we both share the love for walking or hiking and the love for Tuscany.

    I'm offering you exclusive tailored walks and hikes for small groups

    (individuals, couples, families, groups of friends) to suit every request.

    I provide single day or multiple days excursions and walks.

    Perhaps  you'd like to follow the pilgrims' routes in San Gimignano or to sneak into the Chianti area vineyards to see the harvest of the grapes. Perhaps you prefer to walk to a springtime food festival in the Florence countryside. Perhaps you'd like to hike on remote nature trails or maybe you'd like to learn all about the making of alabaster statues in Volterra. Perhaps...

    I will bring you to the authentic off the beaten path places. Walking and hiking with me you will  see not only how beautiful is the "back road" Tuscany but you will experience the warmth of a country and of its people. You will be part of my everyday life. I will share my family, my friends and my favorite spots with you.

    You will fall in love with Tuscany just by interacting with the locals...farmers, shop owners, people on the streets. No panic, I will provide some help with the language.

    My goal is making your visit to Tuscany an unforgettable experience!

    The Romance Bookmark with Renee Bernard presents: Patricia W. Fischer

    in Books

    15 minutes of who-knows-what about authors and maybe even their books.  Lots of laughs, gossip and more laughs!  We'll catch up with one of my favorite Texans and talk cowboys, Tuscany and why size matters so much to the residents of the Lone Star State--Patricia W. Fischer.  But we'll have to talk fast because Patricia is always doing ten things at once, with plans for a hundred more so it's a rare thing to get her! Cowboys rule and women drool....or something like that.... I was going to say something fun about how amazing her books are but that just came out wrong... Where's my horse for a graceful exit into the sunset?
