Ski

First, Turin is the capital of Piedmont, home to the DOCGs Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera d’Asti, to name but a few. Second, nearby Sestriere resort hosted the Alpine events of the 2006 Olympics. Third, this mountain town was the birthplace of the Slow Food movement and offers some of the best farm-to-table dining on the planet. So, when are you booking your trip? 

Snow junkies who can escape to New Zealand during our summer need head straight to Central Otago. In this up-and-coming region you can ski The Remarkables and Coronet Peak and pour some of the New World’s tastiest Pinot Noir.  

What the Willamette Valley lacks in elevation (when compared to, say, Oregon’s Mount Hood area), it more than makes up in award-winning wines. Be sure score lift tickets at Mount Hoodoo or Willamette Pass.
