Holidays Made Easy: All the Essentials

Dear Friend,

What a year. Looking for a way to brighten your Christmas or Hanukkah? We’ve gathered some ideas to help.

For your table, our suggestions include a perfectly simple Ribollita recipe from our Tuscan kitchen, Tracy’s take on a hearty classic. Anne from Provence has made some excellent wine suggestions in a list that would make Bacchus blush.

For your conversation, we have plenty of ideas too, from art history and the colorful story of Cezanne and Van Gogh in Provence to trip plans and ideas for virtual travel. Flamenco? Islamic culture in Southern Spain? A walk through the Renaissance in Florence? Book a Virtual Weekend away and you’ll have lots to share.

For your charitable giving, we also have suggestions, along with an update on a couple of our Untours Foundation investees who have won support on Shark Tank.

Now that’s a lot to talk about and toast!

Wishing you every happiness,


PS: We even have gift suggestions for the foodies in your life!


Ribollita: Tuscan Soul Food

Ribollita is a hallmark of hearty Tuscan country cooking, a satifying one-pot meal that will fortify you against the chill of winter and feed body and soul. Here's Tracy's easy recipe for this timeless classic.

The Best Wines from Provence
Our French colleague and favorite wine expert Anne Plomb has assembled a list of her favorite wines from Provence. Cheers to a special holiday splurge or gift idea for the wine snob in your life. Santé! 

The Post-Impressionists in Provence
The light of Southern France helped create the radical shifts in color and form that bridged impressionism and modern art. Van Gogh and Cezanne pushed art in new directions while living in Provence. Here's a fascinating primer. 

Before Shark Tank
The Untours Foundation invested in Kreyol Essence and Yellow Leaf Hammock before either of them appeared on Shark Tank. We pick winners and invest to help them grow. Help us boost these green businesses.
