This month, if not today exactly is the two year anniversary of my blog, Avvinare. The post I wrote two years ago today was about Tenuta di Blasig. Tenuta di Blasig celebrates 221 years of activity today.
I met Elizabetta Bortolotto Sarcinelli, the owner, some years ago and interviewed her at her lovely home at the time. The wines were exquisite and it was the first time I had ever had Malvasia Istriana. I reposted in the above link the original article I wrote about Elizabetta.
It’s been a long two years with lots of fun and lots of wine. I’ve met some great people through this blog and had some truly memorable experiences. I’ve decided I need to spend at least a few weeks getting back to my roots and will only write about Italian wines this week and will finally publish one of my women in wine articles that have been languishing in my drawer.
As I rearrange my house for the nth time and try to incorporate all of my materials, I realized with chagrin that I will never live in a paperless world. I have reams of paper, brochures and maps from every town and winery I have ever visited. E piu forte di me….(I can’t fight it.)
In any event, thanks to anyone who has been reading my missives on wine and life. If anything is a topic that you want to discuss or research, please let me know. Additionally, anyone writing about indigenous varieties from other regions of the world, my favorite topic other than women in wine, who wants to guest blog or post here, also let me know.
Tanti auguri to me 🙂
