Culinary Travels A Tuscan Harvest
I never tire of Tuscany, especially when my visit coincides with the grape harvest, sunny skies, and sumptuous Tuscan cuisine. I got all of that and more on this trip. It all starts in Chianti with Castellani, the world’s largest Chianti producer, and a house dedicated to reviving nearly forgotten native grape varietals. We’ll cook you a meal that will blow you away, take you into town for a visit to a pasta plant, and visit a man who’s made the simple egg an art form. Later, it’s the amazing Castello Banfi-the vision of two American brothers who’ve transformed a castle into a one of a kind wine estate. There’s a new luxury hotel at Castello Banfi, a world-class gourmet restaurant, and some of the best wines you’ll find anywhere!
