Part two of the Sip Trip episodes dedicated to the history and traditions of the Valpolicella is finally on-line. The Tommasi family brings the blessings of much needed rain when Pierangelo Tommasi brings Jeff Porter and his crew on a tour that began with a properly enjoyed espresso at Villa Quaranta and on to the Valpolicella’s oldest historic Villa De Buris owned by the Tommasi family for many years. On this episode of Sip Trip there is of course lots of Amarone and lunch with the Valpolicella’s most famous dish, Risotto all’Amarone. Jeff and friends also learn the importance of family when it comes to wine production in Italy and start to understand why everyone seems to want to feed you in Italy. Sip Trip is a journey through Italy with host Jeff Porter and friends, where he explores the vineyards, the producers, the wine, and the terroir of Italy through the lens of its world-renowned culture. From Veneto in the North to Puglia in the south, Sip Trip is set to be Italy’s greatest road trip with America’s biggest wine lovers.
