Title: Sorting Grapes by Hand
Entrant: Sharon Astor
Tour: Rioja: Hidden Spain, Land of Wine
Description: We were on our bike route when we happened by an open “garage.” It turned out to be part of a winery where they had a special group hand sorting grapes. These grapes were to be used in a different kind of wine than grapes pressed by foot. We even got a special tour of the winery by the owner. It was our lucky morning!

Title: Bicycling in Italy….that’s amore!
Submitted by: Jo Wessels
Description: It became evident right away that “a little bicycling, a little sightseeing, a little food, and perhaps a little bit more wine” was the cadence of this amazing “Through the Heart of Italy” guided tour. Bicycling through small villages, huge vineyards, ageless castles, and close to spectacular lakes hallmarked a week’s experience of a lifetime. Wine and olive oil purchases we made on day tours were shipped back to the states…. and are now disappearing too quickly as we savor memories of a perfect Italian biking trip!
