I arrived in Cortina last night for the 9th edition of vinovipcortina.it, an Italian wine event that takes place every two years in this gorgeous location in the Dolomites. The event is a three day extravagance with wine tastings at mountain “rifugi” at 2500 meters above sea level with Jancis Robinson, MW as keynote speaker. It should all be very exciting. I’m here with a dear friend from Milan and excited to see many wine friends and producers I know over the next three days and to try some incredible wines in this exquisite location.
I almost never go to the mountains in the summer and certainly am not often in the Dolomites these days. When I lived in Italy I did hike on the Marmolada glacier one July with friends and I have been skiing here but wow it am amazed at the beauty of thes mountains this am. Jet lag is great because you get an early start on your day. 🙂
