About the Author

Terry Hart
terenziohart Madison, WI USA

Beginning with a 2-year stint in the Peace Corps, my wife Debra and I have travelled much of the world, and during the past 25 years, have visited our two favorite European countries (Italy and France) more than 30 times, gathering a wealth of travel secrets and connections. Recently, we have become passionate about Tuscan olive oil, particularly Pornanino olive oil, and have been adopted into the Franco Lombardi family in Chianti, where we have helped with their olive harvest since 2004.

Partnering with many of our Italian friends, we offer very small, personalized tours to Tuscany for those who want a unique travel experience.
