Richard Stern's curator insight, July 9, 2014 9:04 AM

The travel industry is being impacted by technology in a good way. The companies that specialize in helping customers, use technology to provide better, faster answers. The more you come in contact with technology the more productive it becomes. It makes sense to have a professional use this technology for your companies benefit when it comes to corporate travel.

Piedmont and the World's 10 Best Trips for Wine Lovers

Piedmont and the World's 10 Best Trips for Wine Lovers | Social Media in the Travel Business | Scoop.it

There’s nothing quite as enchanting as a vacation in one of the world’s great wine regions, where stunningly beautiful vineyards serve as the perfect backdrop for tasting some of the best vintages available. And while more and more wine destinations seem to sprout up every year, some places will always set the standard for wine lovers. These 10 essential trips will inspire you to explore the wide world of winemaking.

STELLENBOSCH - South AfricaSONOMA COUNTY - CaliforniaBURGUNDY - FranceBAROSSA VALLEY - AustraliaPIEDMONT - Italy - As if the sumptuous Barolos and Barbarescos produced in Piedmont weren’t reason enough, the area’s high concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants, luxurious hotels, and high-end spas - not to mention scenic vistas with pretty hills at the base of the Alps - are increasingly luring visitors to Le Langhe in northwest Italy. Worthy wine-tasting stops (advance reservations are usually necessary) in Barbaresco include Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Gresy and Produttori del Barbaresco. In Barolo, make a trip to the familial Fratelli Barale, in operation since 1870. Insider Tip: Combine your passions for fine food and wine by visiting in the fall, when white truffles make their coveted (and expensive) appearance in local markets and restaurants.WILLAMETTE VALLEY - OregonCENTRAL OTAGO - New ZealandLA RIOJA - SpainDOURO VALLEY - PortugalMOSEL VALLEY - Germany
