Whilst we’re in the season of Piemonte, with the competition and everything, I thought I’d continue with a kind of Piemonte 101. As we heard from last time, Piemonte’s up in the North West of Italy, in that little bit in between France, Switzerland, and the sea. Directly translated to “the foot of the mountains” it’s where the alps calm down a bit and the hills start.
So yesterday I was talking about a trip the wife and I made to a local winery round here. I spent the whole post talking about the building, which I’m hoping wasn’t as boring as it sounds now I’m reading that back to myself! Let’s have a do at talking about the wines, eh?
Well in fairness, I am in Italy, so the chance of two weeks of me trying to do something and not have weird village rivalries bugger it up somewhere down the line were slim to begin with.
Before anyone worries, I’m talking about wines here! Maybe I should reword that title? Might get some card carrying BNP members clicking on the link, but sod it, I’ll take the extra readers for the day!
