Winery Wednesday


This winery is near and dear to my heart. Silvia is a good friend and I am a super fan of the whole Altare family. Besides the fact that they are wonderful people, they also make really good wine. Elio is considered the “godfather” of Barolo, something you can learn more about if you see “Barolo Boys, The Movie”. If you are in the area I suggest you try to book a visit here. Read more about the winery and their wines here. And if you end up going, please say hello to the family for me!

Mangialonga 2013

Almost a year ago, I had the pleasure of participating in the Mangialonga.
For those of you who don’t know, Mangialonga is basically a “walkathon” where you walk about 2km, while eating and drinking. Drinking a lot!
EVERYONE is welcome (you have to buy a ticket of course), but last year dogs, and kids, and adults, and cripples and whatever else came through the Start line and the crossed the finish line a few drops of alcohol later.
At the end, there is a party, with Moscato (as much as you may desire).
