Home Sweet Home – A Post Tuscany Experience

I’ve been traveling around the country – Houston, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Chicago – with the Consorzio Tutela Morellino di Scansano DOCG. While I think it’s not serious of me to write about the wines that we showcased, I do feel that I can write about some of the great people I met on my travels these past two weeks. I’ll start with Chicago and a Tuscan Foodie, Michele Barsanti.

I met Michele yesterday and immediately was interested in his blog concept, an Italian who likes American food. Check it out. Today I read a post on his blog that truly warmed my heart, an ode to something I hold dear as well but I’ll let you read it rather than have me ruin the surprise. Michele is from Pisa and having lived with a Florentine for many years, I had heard a lot about Pisani but have never spent much time in Pisa apart from a few touristy days.
What I did see of Pisa was stunning – the Campo Santo, the tower and the Church.

Tuscany has and always well hold a huge piece of my heart, as it does for so many who have spent time there. I always feel that it was a gift to be able to live beneath the Boboli gardens in Via Romana for some years.

Pisa is a beautiful and often overlooked city. I will post some pictures tomorrow but I did want to point out one of the interesting people I met during my travels.

  1. Well, thank you!!! It was indeed a pleasure to meet you yesterday…Don’t let people from Florence influence you about the rest of Tuscany. They like to think they are “THE” real Tuscany, but other Tuscans (me included) beg to differ!
