This week, Rick learns the fine points of sampling fine wine with vintner  Cecelia Bottai (che-CHEE_lya   bo-TYE)   and Ruth Arista  (ar-REES-ta).
          Cecelia's vineyards have been growing grapes for 2000 years in Italy's Umbria region, and Ruth operates a wine shop in Rick's hometown in the Seattle suburbs.   They discuss the difference in reputation between red, white and rosé wines in Europe, and what your senses can look for when sampling a good glass of wine.
          It's "Wine Tasting 101,"  plus listener calls on planning family trips to Europe,  on this week's Travel with Rick Steves. For more information on Travel with Rick Steves - including episode descriptions, program archives and related details - visit
