Wine Tasting

This past spring I went on a wine tasting tour. The place was the Rodaro Winery in Spessa, near Cividale del Friuli.

The private quarters

Among the whites I preferred their Ribolla Gialla, but I absolutely loved the Schioppettino above all.

The location was splendid, we also visited the cellars.

A lovely afternoon worth visiting again

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
