Wandering in Tuscany this Summer!


Vinci Town PhotoWondering where to Wander this Summer?

It is nearly June and I am wondering where to go this summer. My very close friends from my days as Julie McCoy, Assistant Cruise Director on the Love Boat, invited me visit them in Sardinia. I have never been and I cannot wait to go.

I am trying to decide what to do in Italy before I meet them in Sardinia. I want to go back and sit in a café on the island of Ischia and watch the water while sipping prosecco. But what else to do that is new to me?

-Beauty_Shot_Chianti(2) I did research about Italy and I am drawn to Vinci, Tuscany. I want to sip Chianti where Leonardo Da Vinci is from. I wonder what he and I would talk about. He was so curious about everything, always sketching and thinking and drawing. I would definitely ask him about science and art and I am certain the beautiful area would inspire us. I wonder what he would think of the internet!  Leonardo Da Vinci once said, “The discovery of a good wine is increasingly better for mankind than the discovery of a new star.” I want to go see if I agree! I think I would sit and sip and feel his enthusiasm.

Do you want to share your creative genius? You could win a trip to Vinci! For the fourth consecutive year DaVinci Wine announces the launch of the Storyteller Experience, inviting creative individuals to apply to experience a week in Vinci, Italy, the home of Chianti, birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci and home to and DaVinci Wine’s thriving cooperative of over 200 growers. Enter by May 31!

The Italians have la dolce vita or the sweet life. I cannot wait to return to the place where stopping in the street to say hello is much more important than rushing about. I want to savor the fresh tomatoes, eat homemade pasta and gelato and sip chianti with the memory of Leonardo!

  1. I adored Italy, the laid back atmosphere, the wine, the food. I haven’t been to much of Tuscany, but Vinci, Italy sounds fantastic!
