Thanks for stopping by! 

Hi, I’m Val! My little site started with my expat adventures in Piedmont, Italy in 2013. I write about wine, food, culture, and travel in Barolo and Southwestern Piedmont, Italy.

Find tips and info on wine-ing and dining, getting around, Piedmont wine, Barbaresco and Barolo tours, food, and more. In addition to the Piedmont wine region, find info on parts of Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and more. Salute!
