One Response to “His wine publications”

  1. Don Riley Says:

    Splendid column on Friulan wines. I spent some years importing both whites and reds, mostly from Collio and Colli Orientali, years ago, I go back fairly often, and nothing brings greater pleasure than roaming through the hills and osterias from Gorizia through Cormons, Cividale, out to San Daniele and on up towards Gemona; no rush, no hurry, peace, tranquility, friendly and courteous people, beautiful countryside, and good food and fine wines throughout.
