Welcome to Girl’s Gotta Drink!

Thanks for stopping by! My little site started to pass the time when I started my expat adventures in Piedmont, Italy in 2013. Y’all seem to like it, so it has become a lot more.

I answer questions on Barolo and Southwestern Piedmont, Italy from a visitor’s perspective, pulling from my tourist days as well as reader and Barolo tour client interactions. Find local tips on wining and dining, getting around, Piedmont wine, Barbaresco and Barolo tours, food experiences, and more.

In addition to the Piedmont wine region, I write about other places in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and more. Check out my Verona, Italy section, learn about places like Tuscany, Franciacorta, and more!
