The cheese and wine lunch we had with Hande was fun, delicious, educational (for the expert and the novice alike) and the perfect way to start our Roman vacation. She is charming, intelligent and so very knowledgeable that our time together flew by. She gave us a better understanding of matching wine to food and a greater appreciation for the wines of Italy, Sicily and Sardinia. We made better choices at restaurants and plan to use our new understanding to serve more Italian wines at home. We were wine loving foodies before our luncheon with Hande, but now we understand why certain foods taste better when served with an appropriate wine. BRAVA Hande!! Mille grazie.
