Stop number two was in the lovely town of Montalcino. The group met up with local relatives, and had a fun time at lunch together.
I, in the meantime, let them have some private, family time and headed off with the group’s translator to explore a new restaurant. What a find…..a future tour stop for sure! These beans were sooooo delicious, the view stupendous, and the wine…..sigh.
Now, comes the Romance part! One of the gentlemen on the trip had wanted to renew his wedding vows for their 30th wedding anniversary. It was to be a surprise for the wife. Everyone in the group was “in on it”, except her! Arrangements were made to have the event at a beautiful medieval abbey in the countryside outside Montalcino. It was a simple, heartfelt wedding vow renewal. We all cried….then drank Prosecco!
