The Tuscan Transition

Switching gears after a fantastic adventure in France, I am refocusing my attention on the great wines of Italy.  Several functions this month have my creative juices running on overdrive. Firstly, I am conducting a tutored tasting for a private group of 20 and they've asked for an Italian theme. For that, I'm thinking Presecco, Orvieto, Barbera, Barolo, and Amarone.  The evening is sure to be a memorable event.

Additionally, I'll be the guest host on Twitters WineChat at 9 pm on November 28th where we are talking Super Tuscan wines in the most informative, action-packed, and welcoming environment imaginable - join us if you can!  

I've also just renewed my writing agreement with Oakville's online newspaper for another six month run. Do take a moment to visit the site at where you can read about the history of Chianti and the impact of the Super Tuscan phenomenon on that region.
