Piedmonte.

5/29/2013


Kirby's post this morning got me thinking about the time Matt and I trekked around Italy. One of our very favorite places was Piedmonte. It's a grape-growing region in the north, that (in my opinion) rivals Tuscany in terms of stark contrasts and breath-taking vistas. We visited one (very small) family-owned winery. The owner didn't speak English and neither did his mother, who very kindly brought out complimentary salami, olives and cheese while we sampled Moscato d'Asti. We walked away with six bottles at one euro a piece!

Have you ever been to Italy? What was your favorite town?

This sounds amazing! Italy is one place that I have yet to travel and the countryside is definitely a part that I would love to see :) XO Brynn

What a perfect afternoon!

We spent a few days in Montepulciano the summer I turned 15, and it was some of the most beautiful countryside I've ever seen.

I’ve been lucky enough to stay in a tiny little town in Tuscany (we were the only people who spoke English). We ate pasta and drank wine every day! It’s a really special place…
