I’ll attempt to make this short and sweet, naming the places we visited but not in detail. 20160930VENICE&FLORENCE_BLOG001My best friend Sara has been involved in the wine industry since college so Italy was the perfect place to integrate her passion with their trip. We were just lucky enough to be there. In south Tyrol/northern Italy we toured two vineyards. J. Hofstätter being the first.20160930VENICE&FLORENCE_BLOG006

The memories made there were some of our favorites.
