Wine tourism in Campania
It's been a while since I published an article dedicated to wine travel abroad. That's because for almost two years now, Covid has severely limited our trips to foreign countries. In November 2021, I was lucky enough to spend a week in Naples and its region. Although wine tourism was not the main reason for this trip, I couldn't help taste some wines and marvel at the vine-growing landscapes by the seaside. Here is what you should expect when going to Campania.

The winemaker's tart - a specialty from the Loire Valley
Autumn is back, and with it, the harvest season - grapes of course, but apples as well! This is the time to taste and bake a Loire Valley dessert: the winemaker's tart, originally from Chinon, is a light and crispy apple pie covered with wine jelly. I regularly serve it during the wine tastings and the picnics I organise in the vineyards. You will find it in many bakeries and pastry shops in Touraine.
