Hello all. Let me begin by saying thank you to all of the regular posters here who have armed me with far more information than I can process as I prepare for my upcoming trip to Italy this July. We're going to be in Rome for 4 days, and am happily totally unsure of how I'll manage to eat all 100 meals that I've decided are essential - but that's for another post.
My question here involves our plan to bounce our way between a few agroturismos (agroturismi?) over a couple of weeks going from Rome to Milan. The thinking is this - we want to spend our days exploring in the car, walking in the hills, seeing some art, but most importantly, eating. Ideally, then, we'd return home at night to eat amazing food and drink good wine - no longer saddled with the car.
Now, I know that the relative merits of accommodations are beyond the scope of these boards. And that's not really my question - because what we care most about is food. The ideal place is good traditional home cooking with produce and meat from the farm - local oil and wine is a plus.
So, I want to ask those who know: if you could choose 2-4 farms to eat at on the rough northward path between Rome and Milan, which would they be? Tripadvisor can help me decide if the accommodation side works or not - but it just can't be trusted with food.
Thanks in advance.
