"2012 DaVinci Wine Storyteller - Mark Leslie"

An Italian Adventurer’s Journal

~ Ciao, ciao, ciao DaVinci ~

The “2012 DaVinci Wine Storyteller” experience was truly remarkable. Not only was I given the opportunity to travel to Italy, but I was also given the opportunity to learn, to grow and to expand my life. It was a beautiful gift to have been given and one that I am grateful to still carry with me.

Traveling with me were three talented artists: Jade Sheldon-Burnsed, Cathi Ianonne, and Michelle Kondrich. Visit their blogs to see what they are creatively doing.

Un grande mille grazie to DaVinci Wine’s staff, both in America and in Italy. Hospitality and graciousness were shown and extended to us at every turn without hesitation or a second thought. Bravi, tutti!

And my thanks extends to everyone at the Casale di Valle (pictured above) plus our guide Carolina and driver Filippo.

It was everyone’s support that gave me the idea to do the “Good People” video, #3 in my series for DaVinci.

Buon Appetito~
