Every year for his birthday, my dad throws a BBQ by the name of “Pylsa & Barolo”. This way he can celebrate his birthday with his friends without making it an official birthday. This year was special because he turned 50! He decided to fly down his closest friends and family to celebrate in Barolo! We invaded La Morra and occupied all of Corte Gondina. Many events were scheduled, but the main event that started the whole thing is Pylsa & Barolo. Below are some photos of the event. You’ll find the wine lineup at the end!
This past week was a little special, because my dad (Signor Tony) turned 50! The wine consumption was slightly higher than usual, as you can see in the foto below, and the wines were incredible. This picture is from the “infamous” Pylsa & Barolo, which was located in Barolo this year. And another special feature this year was the bottles: all magnum!
After moving to Milano, I had to start finding new wine stores. One of those was Peck. At Peck you don’t only find wine, they have a great selection of food as well (I spent quite some time in the Cheese section). Downstairs they have their Enoteca, and I was very surprised when I walked down the stairs and entered into the wine section. It was like it was endless. I just kept walking and walking and the store seemed to get bigger and bigger.
They have a huge selection of wines from all over the world, it was almost overwhelming. And they also had a beautiful selection of large formats. Basically one of my new favorite places in Milano. Being Piemontegirl, I usually end up in that section of the wine stores, and true to form that’s where I spent most of my time while I was there. They have the big names like Gaja and Conterno, but they also have a good selection of the less expensive wines. While we are on the subject, good wine does not have to cost a fortune. Just saying.
Definately a place to see if you are in the area. Check out their website for more information.
