d albaToday we leave for a month in Italy. Wine Blog Daily will be on hiatus for the month. Other blog posts will depend on my Internet connection and inclination.

We will be in Florence for 3 nights before embarking on a glorious wine and food tour of Tuscany, organized by The Wine Vault and Bistro, a local San Diego restaurant.

Then we spend 10 days in Piemonte figuring out Barolo, 7 days in Valpolicella sipping Amarone, and 3 days in Friuli with a side trip to Slovenia.

I will try to post regularly from Italy when time and circumstance permit but I didn’t inherit the journalist gene so we’ll see.
