Our wine tour was on Tuesday April 30.
Thank you to the 4 ladies from Ad Maiora for taking the time to accompany us in your cars and spend the entire day with us!! Much appreciated!
We drove up to the Valpolicella where Suzi had organized a fabulous day for us.
Visit to 2 villas. Gorgeous gardens at Villa Giona.
Wine tastings...at 11 am? Well ok!
Lunch at a small place in Fumane.
and then Suzi's house for dessert.
A surprise for the group! What a treat to go into such a special home. People loved her studio!!
She has been organizing this segment for me since 2011 and she is amazing!! I couldn't do it without her.
