Spinaltermine at Castello di Reschio | Umbria

Pure perfection.  This home on the Castello di Reschio estate in Umbria is absolutely stunning.  We were lucky enough to spend part of the week at Spinaltermine, a 5 bedroom home with views of the Umbrian Hills.  This home is so secluded, found up a private drive, and landscaped with rosemary, olive trees, lawns and a gorgeous infinity pool.  And the interior, well........ every detail was perfect.  Contemporary but rustic.  Want to go back right now, please.....


Scenes From A Restaurant | The Osteria at Castello Di Reschio, Umbria, Italy

I stayed at one of the gorgeous homes at Castello Di Reschio in Umbria.  That will be another post.  In the meantime, this is their private restaurant, the Osteria, which was so rustic and intimate.  And well the food....... magnificent!


Verona, Italy

Just a few moments from Verona, the River Adige, Casa di Giulietta, Verona Cathedral, and the beautiful grounds of the Giardino Giusti.


Giuseppe Giusti Balsamic Vinegar Tasting | Modena, Italy

After our visit to the Ferrari Museum in Modena ( a must for a certain someone), we stopped at the oldest balsamic vinegar company in Modena.  Since 1605, Giuseppe Giusti has been producing the finest balsamic vinegar,  cooking the grapes and putting them into different types of wood casks.  Some have been aged for over 25 years.  The only thing missing was a glass of red and a hunk of parmesan.
