Travel Tips

Packing for a European Vacation

 

La Tana dell’Istrice (The Porcupine’s Lair), a palazzo turned boutique hotel/organic winery by Sergio Motturo and his wife Alessandra. It’s been in his family for 800 years. When they renovated it they included a small dining room for hotel guests. If visitors to the winery make reservations for a wine tasting they can also have dinner which is prepared by local women, family style. It’s great fresh, organic food and wine. His wines have been winning prizes all over.
