Video #33 - Best of Tuscan Wine Tours 2008

The wine tour season is almost over and winter is crawling up on us. In the meanwhile, I have collected some of my favourite video clips from this past year in this video below. The background music is composed and sung by my sister, Tabitha, who's currently studying at the Conservatory in Aarhus, Denmark.
Just a little teaser: Very, very soon I should have some very exciting news to announce - so come back and see me soon!

Video #32 - Making of First Cold Press Extra Virgin Olive Oil w/ Tuscan Wine Tours

I don't think I need to comment much on the following video. I shot it yesterday at my friend's Alberto in Montalcino (http://www.agriturismo-podere-la-fonte.it/) who's one of the few traditional olive oil producers left in Tuscany. The oil is available for shipment everywhere through http://www.tuscany-in-a-bottle-com/.

November

So, November has come with its cooler weather and shorter days.
It is also time for the olive harvest which is very exciting!

All Saints day was spent in the lovely company of Georgia wine tour guests. With permission I'm linking to the wine tour review: http://susancoggin.blogspot.com/2008/11/day-in-tuscany.html


Today, in occasion of my birthday, I took my friends out in the Chianti area and he had lunch in one of my favourite spots "A Casa Mia" in Montefiridolfi.
And these ary my crazy friends and I on a Chianti road (I'm the one flying in the air to the right). The little girl is my daughter Louise who is almost 6.
I shan't speak too much of my own age, but have taken to me the saying on the picture above - a sign found today in a wine bar in Panzano in Chianti.
