By: Claudio DeMarchi – The Traveling Golfer

Barolo, Barbera and Nebbiolo wines from Italy’s Piedmont region are certainly well renowned throughout the world and very familiar to this Traveling Golfer.

Bradshaw International Airport in Basseterre, St. Kitts. Greeted at the baggage claim area by Four Seasons Nevis staff, we were whisked to the nearby port for the 35-minute boat ride of bottomless rum punches to the Four Seasons pier in Nevis, a 92-sq.-km island that sits at the arc of the West Indies’ Leeward Islands, just as the chain begins to dogleg south.
