Our Days At Il Colle: a little piece of paradise

Welcome, Mike and Carolyn and Johanne from California, Louise from Montreal and Judy and Bruce from Virginia.
After a welcoming wine and cheese tasting with our host Giovanni, we toured the property, Il Colle, and settled into our rooms.

We strolled through Greve in Chianti, then visited Podere Le Fornachi, the goat /cheese farm where we met the goats with Lea, followed by a cheese tasting.
