From International Wine Cellars Inc., a dream package for the wine and travel enthusiast - starting in the north in Verona, the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, you will stay two nights at Tommasi's Albergo Mazzanti, visit their winery and enjoy some Amarone. A leisurely five hour drive south will land you next in the southwestern Tuscan hillside region of Maremma, home of the famous and expensive Super Tuscan reds where you'll stay two nights at Poggio Al Tuffo. Further south is our final destination in Montalcino, home of the famous Brunello di Montalcino, where you'll stay a night at the Borgo Canalicchio Wine Relais. Superb meals are included, along with a one-week car rental as well as four winery visits to Tommasi, Poggio al Tufo, Canalicchio di Sopra and Sassetti-Pertimali. Package is based on two and airfare excluded.
For those who have more time, there are great side trips and stopping points to Bologna and Florence which is along the way from Verona to Maremma. Alternatively, you can go further south to Rome from Montalcino..
