2012 DaVinci Wine Storyteller ~

Language Arts: Mark Leslie

In July, 2012, I was fortunate enough to be chosen by DaVinci Wine to travel to Vinci, Italy to explore, taste, photograph, film and write about the wine, food, and people—the experience of living in Italy and that of DaVinci Wine.

Below are my Italian Adventurer’s Journal posts from that incredible experience. The posts are an ongoing project, so check back often or subscribe to my blog here at Beyond the Pasta to get the freshest posts delivered right to your inbox!

Buon Appetito e Buon Viaggio!  ~Mark
