Vadio Winemakers Dinner

It's always wonderful to see good friends and it was a pleasure to attend the Vadio winemakers dinner at Astral in Oslo a while back. First - what a location!! Astral is located a little outside Oslo in a beautiful building (I mean, come on - look at those pictures!) Eduarda and Luis, the winemakers... Continue Reading →

Cavallotto

Cavallotto for my Birthday It has become a tradition to visit Cavallotto for my birthday and this year was no exception. Below you will see the lineup for this year's tasting.  

Wine Night at Cascina Nuova

Wine Night a la Piemontegirl Remember I asked you for advice on how to run a Wine Tasting? Well, here is how it went! My very talented friend Elena Baseotto made me some tasting sheets, and I decided to go for 3 wines next to each other: dolcetto, barbera and nebbiolo. The knowledge level among...

Barolo Weekend in Sweden

Barolo Night in Gothenburg 6 people, 10 barolo, 1 night: does it get any better? (Yes I know one of them is technically a Barbaresco, but it's not my fault someone cheated!)

Mauro Veglio

I have been to Mauro Veglio's winery many times, both for visits and for a coffee break. But I went back again for a visit this time because my brother had never been for an official winery tour and tasting. It's always a pleasure to spend time with Daniela, and Mauro of course (although it's... Continue Reading →

Pira

My first visit to Pira was a few years ago, and the visit was hilarious. My family and Pira together. We spoke little italian and he claimed to speak very little English. He was either being modest or he got better over the years because he spoke English very well this year. He was accompanied... Continue Reading →

Nadia Curto

When you visit with Nadia it's more like a casual aperitivo than a wine tasting. She offers some salami and cheese, opens a few wines and you just sit around and drink together. I always love coming here, I just have the best time. Nadia is wonderful, extremely funny and very kind. It was a... Continue Reading →
