About Me

Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

I'm getting bored, so I figure you must be too.  Let's change it up. Starting today shots for s given week will follow a specific theme. Favorite cities, buildings, natural wonders, etc. And instead of a single shot, I'll be putting up small collections for more of a feel for a place.

Week One: Wine Regions

These barrels and tasting room are underground in a cool storage area just off the main square of the town of Montepulciano, Italy. Smaller and less well-known than the others I'm covering this week, Montepulciano nonetheless produces one of my favorite wines: Montepulciano D'Abruzzo

If you're a fan of peppiery and more organic red wines, try the D'Abruzzo if you see it on a menu. It's a wonderful accompaniment for tomato-based Italian meals (aren't they all?), particularly spaghettis and lasagnas. At least in my experience.

Area tours are available from nearby cities and Rome, or you can "do it yourself".
