GDP on Wine

After Greece I am now in Italy! Catch me live next week!

Posted by Gregory Dal Piaz, Jul 1, 2011.

It's a beautiful day this morning, with the exception of a backing up sewer grate in front of the house!

I had a great drive yesterday through the mountains to the west of trentino, coming through the Passo Tonale. Today I have some chores to do and will be taking picture to use during next week's virtual tasting. I hope you guys are ready to join me!

I'll be staying up late on Wednesday July 6th, really late, to bring you a live tasting from Mezzacorona winery. At 3am i'll begin broadcasting with Lucio, the winemaker, that's somewhere between 9 and 6 for you folks in the states by the way. Check out the details here: Mezzacorona Virtual Tasting.

I'm off to buy some chicken for lunch now and see what else is in the market today. Sure there are supermarkets here, but that's not the way we shop in the middle of summer. The garden was full last night, and required work until 10pm, so it's prime time for  a life of freshness.

Join me next week during the virtual tasting and we can even talk about that, not to mention, the pergola Trentina vine training sstem, the hundreds of farmers that make up the coop of Mezzacorona, as well as the varied and strikingly unique terroirs of the region!

Hope to see you all then!

Sounds good, Greg, but 3am Italy is 10 or 11am Tokyo, and that's a working day for me. Bummer....

When are we going to hear about Greece?

Lucky dog!!!!!  What a trip... sounds like a great time.

I would LOVE to do the virtual, and will definitely do the next, but we will be in a remote area of the Sonoma Coast next week, with no wifi or data/phone signal :-(   Have a terrific trip and tasting.

I'm typing up some notes over the weekend, so you should hear about Greece, or rathr Santorini, in the comng weeks.

 

Sorry we'll be missing you on Wednesday!

Santorini as seen from the roof of my hotel, and a test to see if image uploading is working.
