Friuli Venezia Giulia. All We Can Say Is WOW!

Thoughts, in no particular order:

My Italy photographs are pretty good for an average joe with a Nikon.  These are orders of magnitude better.  Much to learn!

Drones allow some amazing video work.  They’re dangerous to general aviation, but man they’re great when used responsibly.

At the end there’s a listing of the locations used; great for those of us who want to spend a lifetime tracking them down.  Many mental notes already made for new places to explore!

Merry Christmas!

Here at Sassi Italy Tours we made a gluten free lasagna for the celiac among us, and it was fantastic.  We paired it–rather magically we’d note–with Librandi’s Ciro Sangiovese from the toe of the boot that is Italy.

Delicious!  We’re so lucky here–born into a family that appreciates Italian culture, able to eat delicious foods, drink delicious wines, and be home with family on Christmas.  Hope yours was enjoyable as ours!

 

 

Tasting Room in Soave

We love the attention to detail put into common areas in Italian wineries.  This lovely tasting room hosted a fantastic tasting at Cantine Monte Tondo; their superior iterations of Soave Classico, Recioto, local Monte Veronese cheese, and perfect olive oil made for a lovely afternoon.
