Click. Uncork. Enjoy.

There’s a section of The Palladian Traveler’s blog that may be going unnoticed by many, probably because it’s so dark down there.

Alla Torre cantina

I’m talking about the virtual cellar of the GOOD WINES section of the TPT blog.

If you’re WINEFEROUS, or just curious, you owe yourself a visit down in the GOOD WINES virtual cellar, but return often as new bottles are arriving all the time.

Italian whites, reds, rosato and sparkling. Great bottles of wine from all across the Bel Paese that we think you should know about.

Written by

Tom swapped his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "cappello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


  1. Hey Tom… taking a work pause to visit with you … and yes please, I’ll join the table for a glass of sparkling followed by red… poured by you, of course!
