I am still here!

Sorry for not posting much lately, but I am currently in Alba this week for Nebbiolo Prima.

I feel like I am at boot camp because every morning I wake up at seven and evaluate about sixty nebbiolo wines. Barolo, Barberesco, Roero, etc... We are evaluating the 2006 to 2008 vintages.

12:30 is lunch followed by seminars, meeting winemakers, and more wine tasting.

For dinner we enjoy great food and wine with the producers. By the time I am done for the day I will have tasted and/or drank over a hundred wines.

I finally make it to bed around 1 am.

Repeat for five days!

Once I rinse off my purple tongue, I promise to be back.
