Welcome to our new website, Welcome to the Castle! I am delighted to inform you that I have involved my husband Lamberto in this new venture. He is a great connoisseur of wines and their producers, providing recommendations for food and wine to fully enrich your experience. It gives both of us great pleasure to share our experiences with you to help you organize truly special occasions in the name of Italian Lifestyle; we’ll share our favourite maison d’hotes and charming hotels where you can stay, gourmet stopovers for lunch and dinner, and unusual places to visit off the beaten track, all to render your travels even richer and more enjoyable. For the curious traveler in search of “Full Immersion” in our culture and traditions, an overnight stay in a castle, a visit to a prestigious estate, or sampling fine wines at a vineyard and winery will provide a truly unforgettable experience.

In addition to all this, we’ll also be exploring some other familiar topics in this BLOG: D.O.C. provides a handy insiders-guide to choosing, storing and tasting a good wine; I’M GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW!  is a collection of common sense tips to help you arrive at your special day feeling completely relaxed; UPDATE YOUR STYLE provides guidance on conducting yourself in the best manner possible in the world of work. This shared advice, which we hope you will find useful, is born of our personal experience gained over many years.
