In 2005 my wife, Tamar, and I purchased a 17th century Villa in the Piedmont region of Italy. We have been meticulously renovating every detail of the property. New bathrooms, heating, kitchens, swimming pool, tradtional wood fired brick oven for making pizza, and landscaping. We have not set our sights on a 2 acre vineyard planted to Nebbiolo, the famed grape variety used to produce Barolo and Barbaresco wines. We are now offering weeklong visits to the region focusing on cooking courses in our just completed teaching kitchen complete with a fireplace rotisserie and grill, personalized winery visits, and photography workshops.
