“You read about Tuscany in books and you end up wondering what it’s really like.  But it’s not until you feel the summer sun on your shoulders, standing in a field full of sunflowers,  and tasted a local wine from the area that you can really say you know what it was like in Tuscany.  It’s the food, the people, the air…”
