vinitaly-logo.jpegFinally have a plan in place for VinItaly 2009 - we'll be attending Sunday April 5th for the day - hoping to do some live blogging or at least Twittering.

Below are some photos from 2007 - I never made it out of the Tuscany/Piedmont pavilion - but it wasn't a bad place to be stuck!

This is me with Cosimo Gericke of Fattoria Rignana - I think we had both had a little too much wine by then.

Mrs. Grasso of Elio Grasso, a producer of some amazing Barolo's and a most gracious lady. She was quite upset with me that I didn't taste all of her wines!

Castello Sonnino from the Montespertoli DOCG. I don't make it out there as much as I used to as our friends in Montespertoli moved back to the states. Some great value wines by this producer.

Friends from La Banditaccia, a super interesting small organic farm near Montalcino (Montecucco). A visit there is on my list of road trips this spring. I have a bottle of their "Templare" in my collection - I think it is a 2000 or 2001 - that I really need to drink!
