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!

I will just share one photo for now from the wonderful weekend I just spent in Barolo. The weekend was filled with good wine, tasty food, amazing people and horrible weather! But for me the weather doesn’t play a huge role, especially with so many incredible people surrounding me.
The photo is from my Birthday dinner on Friday with my winemaker friends. You can spot Silvia Altare and Gigi, Giuliano and Stefania Corino, Nadia Curto and her husband Davide, Jenny Battaglino and Marco Marengo, my friends from Norway and my brother Ask. Quite a group of people! Not pictured is Fabio Burlotto and Chiara Boschis. I am so grateful that so many wonderful people wanted to share in my birthday celebration!
