Buon Natale a Tutti ~ Merry Christmas to all

Christmas in Florence Italy
My favorite place on earth ~ Firenze, Italy

Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays!  
Buon Natale a tutti!

I wanted to thank everyone whom has supported and joined me on my journey so far.  It's almost been two years since I started this blog to share with you my knowledge of Italian wine, occasional Italian food and wine pairings and my travels throughout Italy.  

I'm looking forward to 2015 where in January I'll be traveling to Verona for the release of the 2011 Amarone compliments of the Consorzio della Valpolicella (Thank you!).  I'll have plenty to share with you from winery visits, meeting winemakers, wine dinners and the big event of the 2011 Amarone release. I also have my North American Sommelier Association (NASA) Italian Wine Specialist Certification exam to pass at the beginning of the year.  There are lots more exciting wines and grapes to explore. 

I have also started over the last few months an Italian bloggers group exploring the food, wine and travel of Italy as we cover each region by region.  It's the first Saturday of every month and we have a great group of bloggers that all have different focuses.  I hope you have been enjoying those as well.

I'm very thankful for where my journey has taken me thus far and I hope you remain to stay engaged with me and please continue to share my site with your networks.  Thank you to all!
