Peaceful Piedmont

... authentic item! Wow!

We were each able to taste a tiny bit or two of truffle during our time in Piedmont, and have to say that our palates must be very common, as we really couldn't see that the taste warranted all the fuss!

In addition to truffles, the region is home to some fantastic (and on this we all agreed) wines - namely the Barolo and Barbaresco wines. We visited both towns during the week, and tasted both varieties. There are ...

Wine, truffles and more wine!

... the same weight. After exploring the town we journeyed to another winery Tenuta Carretta, this time in the Barbaresco area. It has been a grape growing area for 100's of years but only in the latter part of the 1900's has this winery produced world class Nebbiolo red wines. Their wine making operation and cellars are extensive and all underground. We tasted 4 Nebbiolo reds from different vintages.

From there it was a short drive into Bra the home of the slow food movement started by a local chef in response to the opening of a McDonalds fast food restaurant in 1986 near the Spanish steps in Rome. Our guide took us on a tour of this small town visiting the Baroque churches of St ...

The Five Cities

... five cities(cinque terre) that sit atop the hillsides and are connected by ferry, rail or foot. Marianne and Natalie traversed all the way from one end to the other ( 5 hours) and took the train back to the starting point. We're of a certain vintage( I like to think of us as a good wine ) that the ferry was a good manner to get to each village, which we did. My favorite was the most distant city of Porto Venere, where we enjoyed a glass ...
