Taking a short break from the Piemonte posts. Don't worry, there are still more to come and there are some big names and amazing vineyards still due to show up. Some good friends, too.

Just I have to do some, you know, keeping up with life stuff. I'll be back as soon as I can.

In the meantime, check out my visit to Lorenzo Accomasso from last year. There aren't so many Accomasso's left in the Piemonte. Folks whose first Barolo released with their name on it was a 1958. There aren't hardly any left, actually. Lorenzo saw the poverty of post-war Italy on the empty dinner table and survived only through hard work each day. But he did survive. We ought to take notice of what he has to say.
