What’s your first thought when you think Italy? Food and wine, I hope! Southern Italy has some islands that are sometimes forgotten about. Puglia? Great Primitivos to be had! And the food? We’ll leave that to Chef Brian.

All aboard for the Maynards Summer Wine Tour! Travel the world of viticulture with wine tastings and wine dinners from the comfort of the Maynards patio at Tucson’s historic train depot.
