Villa di Piazzano

When I asked Lori what she wanted for her birthday this year she said she’d like to go to Tuscany and visit our friends at the Villa di Piazzano. We’ve been to the Villa many times and always return because to leave the Villa is like leaving relatives behind in Tuscany. Many places can offer a nice room but few can make you feel like family. The Villa itself is a virtual landmark with a long and rich history. The Wimpole family has managed to upgrade and modernize the Villa in tasteful manner adding all the modern amenities you would expect but still maintaining the “Old World” charm. They have recently added a new Sommelier and do wine tastings in the afternoon. We always are sure to dine at least one evening at the Villa with our friend the bubbly Chef Gabriella. Well I can go on forever with our pauses for the Villa but as they say “TRY IT YOU”LL LIKE IT”.

About Ivan Klugman

Born in New York and raised on Long Island. my Passion for photography became apparent at age eleven. I earned money waiting tables at my farter's restraurant and purchased a Pentax Spotmatic. I proceeded with photography passionately until I was sixteen when I took my first flying lesson. My photography took a back seat to my flying for many years. Now I'm an airline Captain flying internationally. I consider myself a gourmet, eating at the finer restaurants of France and Italy. I also have an interest in wine and enjoy visiting the major wine regions of Italy, France and The United States. About 7 years ago I started to combine my passions for FOOD, WINE and Photography by photographing the food and wine I consumed on vacation. I sent some of these out to be framed when the gallery owner suggested I sell these photos to others: The Photo Gourmet INC was born. I currently reside in Delray Beach Florida with my lovely wife of tens years Lori. We enjoy flying around the world eating, drinking and photographing.
