Vino Travels Turns 7!

Every year I'm always amazed that another year has flown by and it's been 7 years on this Italian wine journey I've undertaken.  I'm grateful for all those that have shown interest in Vino Travels over the years and I like to use these anniversaries as a thank you to you all.  One of the best parts is the collaboration with wine folks around the world and the virtual friendships that have been made, although most of them I've never met.  We all share a common passion and interest in wine and that is what is so special about it all!

I'm currently working on an additional Italian wine certification through the Wine Scholar Guild and am almost wrapping up the first part on Northern Italy.  It's a much longer process now with kids, but I'll get there.  I'm doing this to keep my knowledge up to date and to remind myself of some of the pieces I have forgotten.  It also drives a lot of interest within myself to seek out and try some of these wonderful grapes I learn about along the way.

2020 has proven to be a challenging year so far, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic the world is facing, but I believe obstacles like this is what makes us stronger and in the end we'll all be better for it.  Take this time to try or learn something new and maybe dig into a wine course or certification yourself.  You'll find it very gratifying.

Thank you again to all and let's look forward to another great year!  Grazie a tutti!
