Enchanted by Italy, a young woman secures a post teaching English as a second language in Florence and is able to explore all the magic the land has to offer. Great wine, good food, and more await!
Author, international traveler, and passionate wine lover Elizabeth Calhoun invites you to experience Italy along with her. Her work is a unique mix of informative wine guide and fictional romance. She pairs each wine with a beautiful, hand-crafted story that portrays the beauty, deep history, and deeper passion of nine of Italy’s twenty different wine regions, covering over forty varieties of wine.
In addition to a description of each wine, along with food pairing and tasting notes, Calhoun’s stories capture the spirit of the wine. Famous Italian personages like Lorenzo de Medici make appearances in vivid, fleeting portraits of a specific time, place, and mood. Legends blend with history and present-day adventures to create a fantastic voyage through Italian wine country.
The short stories are framed in the journey of Calhoun’s heroine, who discovers a whole new side of herself as she gets swept up in a dreamy, steamy romance!
