Chianti Classico‘s Simposio is a slow travel cookbook with traditional recipes, beautiful places, pictures, and hints of the local culture.

Before going, get your copy of Simposio. Snuggle on the couch, sip from a glass of good wine, and listen to soft music. There’s so much to learn, so much to devour (with your eyes, too), and a lot to put on your travel bucket list!
