2017 wrap up

2017 was a very busy year (in fact we missed our 10 year anniversary of living in Italy) filled with lots of traveling. We had some repeat customers who requested to see and learn about other wine regions in Italy some well know others not as much so here are a few photos of our wine travels this past year
Verona home of Amarone, Valpolicella Ripasso, Soave, Bardolino and ……..Starting in the late 90's we travelled to Verona every year to attend VinItaly.

Aosta home of Petit Rouge, Prié Blanc and one of the highest vineyards in the world making sparkling wine at 1187m (3,895ft).

Riding up the mountain to our favorite place in the Dolomiti (Dolomites) Collalbo.

Dolomites, Home of Kerner, one of our favorite white varietials in Alto Adige.

Venice, almost home to Prosecco, a very wine friendly city.

Cinque Terre Home to the DOC wine called "Cinque Terre DOP" a white wine made from a blend of Uva Bosco, Albarola and Vermentino.

After 10 years as a one car family we now have a car for photography tours that can get Robert and his customers into the vineyards year round.

Spent three lovely nights in Bergamo, the concert Messa di Requiem at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore

Front row seats thanks to our friends who know the conductor Corrado Rovaris, a very nice surprise after waiting outside for good seats.

We took the long way home from Bergamo by passing through Torino just in time for the first snow of the season.

After Torino we came home to vineyards covered in snow. Very good for the vines.
