Dear readers, give me a break. The next two weeks me and my computer will be separated, as much as possible at least. I think that's healthy. But the thought of doing no postings also gives me a somewhat uncomfortable feeling: maybe readers will walk away from a blog that remains idle for more than two weeks. But well, I will have to take that risk.
I will be visiting the Maremma. Tuscany's fascinating young wine region near the sea (sea is mare in Italian). With the renown production area Bolgheri, named after the tiny little village in the plains. But I rather visit neighbouring picturesque hillside village Castagneto Carducci. There I will find some great bottles at my favourite enoteca − later I will share with you name and address.
Besides being a wine region, this part of Italy is one of the most beautiful and heavenly places in Europe. I can't wait to go. And luckily I don't have to.
Maybe I will share some wine experience with you in the coming weeks. I'm sure I will be drinking great stuff like Grattamacco (de-li-cious) or their second wine, simply called Bolgheri Rosso; or Sassicaia's second wine "Guidalberto", or third wine "Le Difese". Or Le Macchiole. Anyway, many very interesting wines to taste!
I'll be back. Thanks for your patience.
