Ho Prenotato? Did you make a reservation?
These phrases are commonly heard in the local restaurants in Langhe. As the region is becoming more and more popular, the restaurants are of course filling up, especially during the busiest seasons. Restaurants like More e Macine and Osteria Veglio are often very full! So, my advice to you? Make a reservation!
Don’t expect to show up with 10 people on a Friday and have there be a table available. Ok, maybe you’ll get lucky and they’ll have one for you, but you can expect them to say: Ho prenotato? And if you make a reservation you are guaranteed to eat at the place you want, instead of having to find a random place and potentially be really disappointed. And the restaurants appreciate it too 😉
Veglio has some exciting news
Mauro Veglio and Alessandro Veglio have joined their wineries! Two great producers have now become one! Mauro is Alessandro’s uncle, so they are keeping it in the family 😉 Their wines are similar in styles and they share the same philosophy, so this should be a wonderful adventure! I am very excited to see what the future has in store. Congratulations!

La Morra – my favorite place on earth
My latest trip to La Morra was fantastic! I always say that, but that’s because it’s true. This time I tried 3 new wineries, had lunch with a good friend and celebrated my graduation – quite the schedule!
Everyone makes fun of me because I usually see all the same people, eat at the same restaurants and eat the same foods. I know I should venture out, try new things, but when the Vitello Tonnato is soooooo good, then I don’t have any choice, right? Look at the picture below – looks so good right?

3 new wineries in La Morra
I did try 3 new wineries this time: Andrea Oberto, Marcarini and Alberto Burzi. It was very interesting to meet new people, hear their stories and try new wines. All 3 visits had their own charm. Andrea Oberto spoke only italian and I ended up having to translae for some other guests. At Marcarini, the woman who showed me around, started to work with the family and then fell in love with the son. And Alberto Burzi just started his winery, it was so interesting to hear his story.
Hope to be back in La Morra soon! A la prossima!
