tasting at Azienda vitivinicola Fernando Principiano
Tuesday, 14 June
Wine tasting in Piemonte, a must. We had an appointment at 10 o'clock at Azienda vitivinicola Fernando Principiano in Monteforte d'Alba. The Spanish wife of the owner Fernando (who we also met) received us ever so kindly and we had a pleasant and informative tasting. Although 10 am is rather early for red wine ^-^
the very kind Spanish wife of Fernando explaining
We did some touring around the area and visited some of the lovely little villages.
Novello: on the left the castle of Novello, which now is a hotel. On the right a lesh posh building.
lunch with local dishes at osteria Belvedere in La Morra, surrounded by of wines.
Wednesday, 15 June
Great day for a hike. So we put on our walking shoes.
Along the road we saw: vineyards, hazelnut orchards, great views, wheat fields, lovely but deserted (holiday?) houses and contemplating landshapes (as the signs indicated ^-^)
it was warm
This evening it's storming here; fierce wind.
For tomorrow rain is predicted, so we will leave Piemonte and go up north to a place called home.
BUT, slowly coz it's still holiday
