People want wine stories

Ciao from Sicily. I’m here this week with operators from Australia, South Africa, Europe, Canada and the United States to name just a few. So far, the major topic of discussion at the Wine Tourism Conference that I’m attending is the fact that travelers desire to have authentic experiences, especially expert experiences when they are abroad.… Read More »


Sightseeing or Savoring?

We’ve all heard this before from travelers: “What is there to see in ___ destination?” In preparing for a big trip, travelers want to know what sights to see. Whenever I hear this, I like to flip the question on its head: “what do you like to do on your vacations?” Sightseeing can make for a great picture… Read More »


Returning to my Authentic Italy

By this time next week, I will be in Sicily speaking at a wine conference about Joint Venture Partnerships.

I’m destined for good food, good laughter, good people and especially Authentic Italian… Read More »

Summer Dreaming

On gray days like today, I fantasize about the summer. I imagine myself back in Italy, hiking the cliffside towns in the Cinque Terre. I smell the fresh sea air. Or, I am in Sicily, diving off sun-bleached cliffs. In the summer months, Italy is a land of sun and sea. Towns seem to grow, like mushrooms, out of the… Read More »


People Don’t Really Love Italy

Does the subject line SHOCK you? It did for me too. At least until I realized that people don’t really love Italy. People love the way they FEEL and they love themselves when they travel through Italy. Naturally, people desire to travel to a place they’ve heard so much about. They want to experience what others… Read More »


Time Travel Is Real

Easter in America brings with it fluffy bunnies. Italy’s Abruzzo region is home – instead – to an astounding fusion of food, faith and folklore. Abruzzo is a rugged land – filled with tall peaks, steep coasts and medieval towns. Every Easter, Abruzzo comes alive with folk traditions you won’t find anywhere else. You might start out in the… Read More »
