Another Round of Wine Tasting Guides and Recipes from The Ravenous Traveler

Wine Tasting in Barolo is Awesome!

The Ravenous Traveler column on EuropeUpClose.com is in full effect—stuffed to the last iota with recipes straight from cooking schools in Europe as well as detailed wine-tasting guides written by yours truly. With the cooking school articles, you can travel to Europe in your own kitchen using just your stomach; this is one of the most inspiring ways to prepare for a trip or to get over the blues of having just returned. The wine tasting guides are filled with practical information (something most guides seem to excel at leaving out). For each guide, you'll find a list of recommended wineries with opening times, how to go wine tasting facts, and wine tasting fees. Check it:

In case you love wine—ah and I hope you do or you really shouldn't be reading this blog—the Twitterverse has been hosting a number of exciting Twitter wine tastings featuring wines and winemakers from regions all over. Twitter wine tastings give you the chance to ask winemakers and tourism pros questions about their wines and regions and receive immediately answers. Plus it's fun! Most recently, we sampled Rieslings from the Finger Lakes region of New York as part of the monthly Finger Lakes Virtual Tasting Series. The tasting uses the hashtag #FLXWine, and you can find out about the next tasting by following @FLXWine. Mmm... riesling and Korean BBQ burritos...
