  1. Hi there traveling Wine Chick,
    I am writing from an Agriturismo (Vacation Farm), Il Poggiarello, which sits in the middle of our Vineyard, Muralia, in the still largely undiscovered area know as the Maremma in southern Tuscany. If you are interested in booking vacations for your clients with us lets get a conversation going. You can check our our web site at http://www.ilpoggiarello.it and http://www.muralia.it.
    I look forward to hearing from you soon

  2. TWC: Now that you have that NC wine taste going you will understand why we started North Carolina Wine Gifts. We have wonderful award winning wines in NC. It is said that NC is on the tipping point for wine lovers to discover what we have here. Have fun and CHEERS from NC Wine Gifts.

    1. I’ve been to three NC wineries now: Biltmore, Brushy Mountain, and Childress. Hopefully I can visit more NC as well as VA wineries (I’m behind there, too!) Cheers!

  3. Hi, there!

    I’m Jane and am an avid reader and blogger, a passion which I think we share. I’ve been writing contents on the web professionally since 2010. I share my experience through articles on Travel, Culture, Lifestyle, Health and many more.

    Your blog “travelingwinechick.com” is probably one of the most interesting ones I’ve seen recently and with due reason. I was wondering if I could do a guest post for your blog.

    I would like to write on “5 Ultimate Destinations to Explore in Turkey” or any other suggested topic for your blog.

    It would be an honor to see my article published on your site.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards,
    Jane Roberts.
