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.
