2009 Trip - Italy - Planning, Part 11

Piemonte To-Do List - Wine

05-15-09a.jpg

Like the old saying goes, so much wine, so little time! But we are going to do our best to taste the wonderful wines that Piemonte has to offer. Here's a little background from Wikipedia.

I am hoping that Diana (of Baur B&B) will be able to arrange a winetasting at her friend Domenico's place, like Jerry and Paul did last year. It sounded like a great way to really get to know the wines at a very local level. Here is what Jerry reported on the tasting - it was one of his top five favorite things during his May 2008 trip.

Other than that, we will probably taste a lot of the Big Three B's (Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera) and one D (Dolcetto) plus anything else we come across in our travels. I know most of the reds in Piemonte are world-class, but I want to try some of the whites too. And one other B, of course - Brachetto, a frizzante light red dessert wine.

So many wines - So little time!

Mom has developed a love affair with brachetto - she and Palma would get on well. Sadly it is not easy to get here in Ontario . . . whenever I see it I buy all I can carry!

Now this sounds like some serious fun! Can't wait to hear all about it.

I am really looking forward to reading about your travels. Piedmont is wine lovers heaven.

Nancy, I would really love to visit Piemonte, too. Between Diana's and Jerry's blogs, and everything else I've read about the region, it sounds so beautiful.

I'll be really interested in hearing more about your planning and experiences there!

Kim:

This reminds me, Diana sent in an article for us to publish on three different wineries in her area. I'm hoping to get it on-line later this week.

Kim, I am looking for any information available about wines there. Of course, I will have Diana right there to advise me!
