International Wine Tourism Conference 2012 --PREVIEW

I'm back! It was cold, wet and snowy!  But the weather did not dampen the enthusiasm or the flavor of the fabulous wines in Italy. I have so much to tell about my whirlwind tour of Italy's wine regions and the 2012 International Wine Tourism Conference held in Perugia in Umbria. I also took a side trip to Puglia after the conference and sampled some of the wines there too. But for now, here is a sneak peak-- just the tip of the ice(wine)berg of posts to come in the following weeks:

Kick-off Dinner in Orvieto

Pasta Making at Arnaldo - Caprai Winery

The International Wine Tourism Conference

Regal Dinner at Castelo dell' Oscano 

Grand Tasting of Italian Wines led by Jane Hunt

The Awesome Wines of Puglia

The Amazing Wines of Croatia

A Night Out at Terre Margaritelli

The Real Houeswives Wine Bloggers of Umbria

The Food and Wine of Campania at Terre del Principe

The Sublime Wine and Food Parings at Villa Matilde

Under the Volcano at Grotta del Sole
There's much much more to come about all the people, places, stellar birthday celebrations, and of course the stay tuned or better yet sign up for posts to be sent via email.

Ciao ciao--

Part 6 -Wines of Italy: Terre Margaritelli - Torgiano


  1. And now I'm quitting work to eat and drink. Thanks Marcy! If you keep posting pictures like these I'll never get anything done.

  2. Great post Marcy. Fox Force Five should reunite for Croatia in 2013.

  3. Thanks Mattie and Kimberley -- Fox Force Five reunion is an imperative!

  4. It was rather fun I have to agree. Looking forward to reading your more expansive thoughts on our visits...

    1. I hope my thoughts can meet your expectations. If they are half as as expansive as my waistline became I have a good chance...;-)

  5. Can't wait to hear and see more. So many of my favorite wines, foods and people made it into these photos!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog Elizabeth. I love your iPhone app EAT ROME. Did not get to use it as much as I would have liked due to the weather. But I plan to mention it in a future post.

  6. Lovely montage of images, and I'm looking forward to your posts. Now I'm really sad I missed the event!


    1. Thanks Michael. It was a great event. So many great wines and many new to me grapes too.
