It is a beautiful morning here with the wind whistling through the large pine tree outside my room and a temperature which reminds me of Estes Park. I woke up early enough to watch a dove and a magpie "playing" together in the yard; almost a mating display but obviously it will never work with such a mixed couple! Today, I am preparing a little flyer to hand out at "Cheese" with our brochure for Nascondiglio di Bacco. It advertises a bit our weekend tasting program of Pecorino cheese and wines. My feeble attempt to enter the Ad biz.
We meet today with the winemaker and agronomist and hopefully will come up with a time table and a concrete plan for planting: when, what, where, etc. I am a bit anxious to have that behind us as we need to order the rootstock with plenty of notice, etc.
Off tomorrow to Siena to view the puppy and then up the coast to Bra, just south of Torino. It will be a long day of driving, perhaps 8 hours or more depending on traffic.
It will be great to see my old classmates from the University, some coming all the way from England and others from Venice, Colorno, and Naples!
Here is my little flyer-let me know, but quickly if you spy any mistakes... unfortunately it is in Italian! Abbracci a tutti!
