Deans Italy & Wine Writing

Over the years I have had several articles published on the Web about Italy.  The sites are nolonger extant so here are the articles for posterity’s sake.  Just a note, our travels to Italy are a thing of the past, so these articles are possibly out of date.  I am just glad I did not put Fiaschetteria toscana in the Venice article or I would have had to update it to note that one of the world’s greatest restaurants is now a Burger King.
