There are many women who work in the Italian wine industry whom I respect and admire. Some of them are friends of mine, others acquaintances and still more that I don’t know. One woman though is so particular that I always smile when I think of her, her wines and her restaurant – Laura Vacca or Laura Brunelli. Laura owns the Gianni Brunelli winery.
I’m thinking about Laura today not because I am drinking one of her great wines but because her restaurant was just mentioned in the New York Times, Osteria Le Logge.
I had one of the best meals of my life at that restaurant with Laura and Gianni in 2007. A truly unforgettable experience and one I highly recommend.
