Has anyone ever traveled to Italy to go on a diet? Like every cartoon, the notion of the oft-romanticized country as the tourist’s pigging-out destination — it provided the “Eat” in Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir “Eat, Pray, Love” — has some basis in reality. Still, the evocation of Italy as one gluttonous infinity of pasta, prosciutto, gorgonzola, gel...

I had the opportunity to meet owner and winemaker, Anna Muzzolini, of the Azienda Agricola Grillo winery of Friuli at a local wine shop. I was excited about the opportunity because Friuli is a region that isn’t talked about as much as some of the others nor visited as a top tourist destination adding to it's uniqueness. If you’re not familiar with...

Hate to break it to you, but you aren't the only one who's noticed that flights to Italy are almost cheaper than flights across the US right now. Don't not go -- go! -- but understand that top dogs like Rome, Venice, and Florence will be even more zoo-like than in years past.

As I travel across the regions of the Veneto, Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli-Venezia Giulia, researching or leading our tours, I am consistently amazed by the huge variety of wines available there. Not only does there seem to be a new DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) region, with its own traditional wines, remarkable terroir and distincti...

HERE'S A TRIVIA question for the self-acknowledged wine geek: which wine region in the world has the most autochthonous (i.e., native) grape varieties? The answer, which may surprise you, is Friuli Venezia Giulia. To locate it, think of the map of Italy, which resembles a limb in a boot. Well, to put it indelicately, Friuli, in the extreme northeas...

About two hours north of Venice lives a scene that looks as if it could have been born in the brain of Vincent Van Gogh or nicked straight off the pages of a Grimm’s fairy tale. Rolling green hills dotted with charming village chalets intersect abruptly with dramatic, craggy mountains that pierce the sky. It’s an outdoorsman’s paradise with endless...
