The Journey Italian Wine Takes

Great write up from our friend Michael Horne on the circuitous route most wine from Italy (and everywhere else) takes to get to your wine shop’s shelves.  I really like the way CA has afforded wine importers to go direct to market.   Colorado is not likely to follow suit, as the wine distributors have the ear of the legislature.

Branzino from the Lagoon!

One of our favorite meals in the world is the grilled branzino, filleted table side by our good friend Massimo, and served in the incomparable Trattoria da Romano’s outside seating.  A little drizzle of olive oil, a squirt of fresh lemon, and the only restaurant in Venice allowed to cook over an open flame shows you why it’s worth traveling around the world for.
