Baroliadi 2018

This summer I was able to join the La Morra team in their annual competition: Baroliadi! Picture a sort of Olympics/triathlon with games centering around wine. Sounds like a recipe for success right?! Well it was! There were 4 different games. First there was the egg toss, where you had to catch an egg in... Continue Reading →

Piemontefestival

Barolo and Friends had another great event in Oslo, this time it was a Piemonte Festival at Nedre Foss Gård. Some wine producers joined us, like Roberto from Malvira, so I got to practice my italian!

That means that you can get a hold of good quality Barolo that normally isn't on the wine list. Last time I attended Chiara Boschis and Claudia Cigliuti came to the event,... Continue Reading →

Alessandro Veglio Winemakers Dinner I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Alessandro Veglio's winemakers dinner in Oslo last week. The dinner was hosted at Kulinarisk Akademi at Mathallen, a very nice location in the city of Oslo. As you can see we were seated right by the open kitchen which gave us the... Continue Reading →

And according to their website (which unfortunately is only in Italian) there  are a few events around town. It's an 8 day event starting May 4th. There... Continue Reading →
