What fun–click here to listen to the W25 podcast featuring Sassi Italy Tours!
As is well known around here, we’re huge fans of the WineTwoFive podcast because it gives you a look at the inquisitive, geeky side of wine culture without all the huffery and snootery that much of serious wineblogging and wine social-media’ing is known for. It’s informative without being snobby, entertaining without missing what really matters to wine drinkers.
Lucky for us, I got to appear on the podcast this week, talking about the importance of wine travel, getting outside our touristy comfort zones, and digging into the *real* Italy and the wonderful wine culture you can find off the beaten path. Give it a listen!
This looks pretty perfect, eh?
Always, click for the real full size image to appreciate.
