Ciao I'm Val, an American expat living in the Langhe, a magical wine region in Northern Italy. I'm a marketing pro by trade and dabble in travel planning, wine tourism, and freelance writing abroad. My expat chronicles include wine, cooking, travel, and other bits and bobs. I'd love to have you join me virtually - and look me up if you make it my way. I'm always up for a glass of vino. Cin cin!
