Along with the UL Study Abroad group, I studied Wine Marketing in Florence for six weeks. After various wine tastings all over the region, I finally began to develop a taste for Chianti. While chianti was the main wine produced in the Tuscan region, we sampled many other blends. We also toured vineyards and wineries to learn everything we possibly could about wine production. These studies gave me an appreciation of the wine industry that I do not think I could have obtained otherwise.
I love the variety of wine. You never know what you are going to taste and there are so many different factors/facets to note when trying a wine.
