Just back from a two wonderful weeks in Southern Italy and there’s so much to share…

  • Our Big Fun Italian Wedding: This was the reason for our trip. We had thirty-one dear friends join us for a long weekend celebration in Positano. I’ll share new finds and more on some old favorites.
  • Capri: a trip to the famous island its Blue Grotto.
  • New Campania Wine Discoveries
  • Puglia: Where to begin? This was our first trip to the ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot…the land of thousand year old olive groves, vineyards and wheat fields.
    • Alberobello: Trulli town
    • Lecce: the Florence of the South
    • Pugliese Cuisine: Home of Orecchiette (little ear) pasta, local seafood and burrata cheese
    • Ostuni: the ‘white city’
    • Locorotondo: the ‘city of white wine’
    • Gallipoli: the ‘beautiful city’ of the Greeks
    • Masseria Torre Coccaro: incredible Puglian masseria and Aveda spa
    • Wine: did you know Puglia produces the most wine in Italy? and I had some amazing ones!

A taste of what you’ll find on Grape Occasions over the next few weeks!
