How about your retronasal passage? Explore along with me as I learn how to approach wine more sensually – and how the mind can trick us along the way.

On my recent trip to the land of truffles, wine and hazelnuts, we got to indulge in the fine art of eating and drinking as only the Italians can, including hunting in the woods with Lady the Truffle Dog and sampling all the wonderful flavors at the White Truffle Festival in Alba (and beyond, but that’s for the next couple of shows). I had some delightful companions on my tour, and they kept…
