Touring Tuscany to learn about wine
(CNN) -- For centuries the architecture, cuisine and natural beauty of Italy have drawn visitors worldwide. But today more and more travelers come with a new goal -- to learn about Italian wines.
Whether it's a landscape rolling with vineyards, or part of a picnic lunch, wine is an integral part of life in Italy. This is especially true for Pierro Antinori whose family has been making wine in the region of Tuscany for 600 years.
CNN Travel Now correspondent Carolyn O'Neil visited with the Antinori family and learned more about what makes Italian wine so special.
