What we drink when we are not drinking Barolo.

Champagne of course!

 Sipping on delicious bubbles with friends in Serralunga d'Alba was the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. If you find yourself visiting this spectacular village, make sure you stop by Vinoteca Centro Storico (Via Roma 6, Serralunga d'Alba; 011-39-0173-613-203). It has become one of my favorite places to eat and drink in Piedmont.

Full moon over Barolo.

Every day I pass by the vineyards I am beginning to see the colors of the leaves change into the most beautiful colors of fall. Tonight while driving, I had to pull over so I could snap some photos and share them with you. Just imagine the smell of wood burning from fireplaces mixed with the chill of the Autumn air, and this stunning full moon in the distance. Welcome to Barolo!

My neighbor and friend Jessica took these amazing photos of our village. Our small and charming town is surrounded by some of the finest vineyards in the region. It really has been an amazing and magical place to call home.


 I live next door to a castle.

If I owned it the gates would be open.

Just hanging out in my hood!

 Across the street neighbors. 

 The clock starts ringing every day at 7 am until 11 am. Poor Jessica's window is next to the clock!

Words of wisdom. RIP Steve Jobs.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs
