Next stop – Piemonte!

Piemonte – It’s been too long!

After a sort of “hiatus” I am finally going back to Piemonte! Since I moved back to Oslo it’s not as easy to take a quick trip for the weekend as it was when I lived in Milan. But the time has finally come! Yay! As per usual, my schedule is jam-packed with lunches, dinners and winery visits.. And this time I will be visiting new wineries. Should be interesting!

Since the trip is short, I will mostly be eating at the same places and seeing many of the “usual” people, but I am not complaining!! I can’t wait to eat at Osteria Veglio, More e Macine and Osteria Vignaiolo. Ciccio is of course on the itinerary along with some champagne! And I will probably be hanging around Annunziata with my friends (Altare, Corino, Veglio – and the geese!!)

If you’re in Piemonte October 12-15 let me know!

Piemontegirl Needs Your Help

tbt cedar treePiemontegirl is going back to Piemonte – Finally!

It’s been waaay to long since last time. In May we celebrated my dad’s birthday and there was little time for exploring and going off on my own. This time I will be there for a long weekend, all by myself, and I am looking for recommendations on who to see and where to eat.

What wineries should I visit?

This is an area where I, Piemontegirl, could use some work. I usually just go back to the regular ones, mostly because I want to see old friends and try their new vintages. I will of course do that this time as well, but I also want to try something new. Any ideas?

Got any good food recommendations?

There is no shortage of food in Piemonte, but I am tempted to try something new for once. Got any suggestions? I am obviously not looking for sushi or spanish tapas, but maybe it’s time I venture outside of La Morra? hehe…

Uve – New place to drink in La Morra

Uve Rooms & Wine Bar

There are always popping up new places to eat, drink and sleep in La Morra, and Uve is one of them. It’s located in the main street leading up to the *top* of La Morra. You can also stay there, they have rooms, but I have not tried it yet. I usually stay at Blueberry, but I’d like to try Uve sometime soon; it’s always nice to mix it up.

Anyway, I have been to the wine bar and it was really nice. You can sit inside or outside, but if the weather permits I always prefer to sit outside. They have many tables scattered around the garden, and although there is no view of the Langhe, it’s very cozy. The wine list was of course also good (it’s not exactly hard to find good wines in the area). Overall a very pleasant experience and I will definitely come back.

Any of you ever tried the rooms?
