Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions

A Tuscan Harvest, Italy

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Tuscany is the artistic, cultural and gastronomic center of Northern Italy. In this program, Burt brings viewers to a vineyard just south of the city of Siena to take part in the fall harvest. We find out what makes the wines of Tuscany so famous, how the grapes are cared for, how the wine is produced. We also get a gastronomic tour of the region and its most famous dishes. We spend time with the owner of the vineyard who immigrated to Canada because he was starving and returned 50 years later as the millionaire founder and owner of Canada's largest trucking company. Burt makes the trip with one of America's leading authorities on Italian wine.
