Sagrantino wine excursions, Amor di gelato



2 August
I just hosted a lovely couple from Spello, Graziano Santucci and his american wife, Brenda, who provide tours of the Sagrantino wine region in Umbria. They live in one of my favorite towns-Spello, and will take you to the best little wineries of the zone. They have great taste in wine (it coincides with mine, which is perfect, right?)
Look them up at www.sagrantinoexcursions.com or email brenda@sagrantinoexcursions.com
Tours are available in perfect San Francisco english or italian!
I plan to visit them when things slow down around here, but right now I under water with a full B&B and a vineyard which is like a needy bambino.
We are full through the 17th of August and then we wind down considerably.
Finally, one more plug. our gelateria in Offida is the best I have tried in Le Marche and one of the best in Italy. Amor di Gelato is adjacent to the Piazza del Popolo and they serve really interesting flavors and can hold their own with anybody in our region. Put them on the list of my favorites along with Fatta di Morgana in Rome and the Grom chain. The owner is pictured above along with a pic I have archived and think is Spello.
Buon weekend and check me out on facebook for more frequent updates under my name.
A dopo

Thanks a lot Dwight. We had a great weekend at your place. It was so relaxing, I felt like I was at home, but with a pool. Looking forward to having you on an excursion when you get the time. Yes, that is Spello in your photo.
Buon lavoro with the spraying.
Baci,
