Why Piedmont Can Be Your Next Tuscany

World-renowned vintages, a bounty of historic cities, towns and hilltops villages, and the vineyard-and-castle-threaded countryside of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato are just some of the reasons to visit Piedmont in Northern Italy. Well-priced vacation homes and lodging are other reasons to lure you here as well. In searching for...

Where should you stay in Italy this summer?

For those of us who've spent the last year and a half mostly cooped up, laying eyes on the sun-dappled Tuscan hills is like rediscovering the entire range of the visible spectrum. Thanks to loosened border restrictions that allow entry by travelers from across the European Union, the United States and several other countries, it's now possible to visit Italy freely, as long as you're vaccinated or demonstrably covid-free.

May Your Summer be Special with June Savings from Black Sheep Winery!

Murphys, CA… Black Sheep Winery arrived in Murphys with the 1984 harvest. From that first harvest we produced our 1984 Amador Zinfandel. The wine was styled in a big, bold way like nobody else could do. That’s what makes us Black Sheep; we’re different from the rest of the flock. We feature small batches of limited release wines handcrafted from high quality grapes grown in Calaveras and Amador Counties. We produce about 2,500 cases of wine per year, specializing in Zinfandels and Rhone varietals.

HTSI editor’s letter: get your motor running…. We’re planning to escape

First, to the superyacht. Recent months have been very generous to the very wealthy, who have throughout this period been making money in a manner quite unlike that seen before. In a world in which multiple personal chefs, a lifestyle concierge and a numinous wellness guru are now considered standard, the accoutrements of the rich have changed very little. Houses, private jets and wine cellars still remain priorities. Still, nothing says “I’ve made it” like a bespoke yacht in which to sail.

The underrated Greek wine that gives pinot noir a run for its money

If Dionysus were creating a grape to seduce those who love the mighty structure and refreshing acidity of nebbiolo (the barolo grape) and those in thrall to the mellifluous fruit of pinot noir, then he might have come up with xinomavro. Perhaps that’s what happened. Xinomavro – pronounced k’see-no-mav-ro –...

10 best vineyards to visit across the UK, from sparkling rosé in Cornwall to blanc de blancs in Surrey

It’s not easy to escape the crowds in Cornwall in summer, but down a narrow, winding track near Bodmin sits the ordered, sun-dappled tranquillity of Camel Valley winery. The first vines were planted at the former sheep farm by Bob and Annie Lindo in 1989 and it remains a family affair. I was greeted by Sam Lindo, the owners’ son and award-winning chief winemaker, who grew up among the vines and now gives an enthusiastic and well-informed daily tour of the vineyard (including one field that has been hand-pruned exclusively by his mother since 1989 – a plaque commemorates her 100,000th vine pruned), as well as the wine-making process, from picking to bottling. After the tour comes an unguided tasting of four of Camel Valley’s core wines – two still, two sparkling – on the terrace, a simple sun trap with views across gently sloping vines into the valley. The highlight? Its world-champion sparkling pinot noir rosé, which tastes of strawberries and summer.

Chill this $12 Portuguese red and you’re ready for summer sipping

This week’s selection highlights two of my favorite themes about wine: The tremendous values produced in Portugal and the amazing diversity of wine grape varieties in Italy. We have an inexpensive red from southern Portugal worth stocking up on for summer cookouts, plus two delicious wines from the Douro Valley further north. June 23-24 is the annual São João festival in Porto, a fantastic time to visit the city during a trip to the Douro Valley. From Italy, we add two wines from the pecorino grape that cry out for seafood.
