    I actually had some great local micro-brews there a few years ago, really surprised me. But they are hard to find in stores there as is, let alone in export.

    If folks want to drink Italian wine, though, feel free!

    Ymm, Wine. There might be a thread for that, too.

    Speaking of destinations, we drove 480 miles from NC today to an undisclosed Ohio address so I could split a sour from Boone, NC with our son.

    In that case, you can focus on different regions! Italy has an absurd number of varietals due to the practice of giving different names based on the regions in which they are grown:


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...rape_varieties

    You could spend a year there before you tried them all. And the good Lord willing, I plan to do just that.

    I need to get back over there - maybe try for a stay at the villa. I want to do a tour of brother places when I retire - I think he is down one as the FLP in NYC is most likely gone.
