If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to the last couple of months, well, this is it.
Hittin’ the books again! Studying for the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Level 3.
Well that … and this …
I’m generating stories for you guys. Here is a little preview.
In September I travelled to the Amalfi Coast and Campania in search of Aglianico, Fiano, Falanghina, Greco, and any other esoteric grape I could get my hands on.
Then I headed up to Piemonte for a couple of weeks to check on the 2014 harvest, taste what 2010 Baroli haven’t been snatched up by the masses, preview some 2011s, hang with friends, and discover new producers.
My adventures are continuing in Piemonte once again. Then I’ll venture up north to Valle d’Aosta, and perhaps into Tuscany—maybe even Umbria.
You’ll see it all here in the near future … but probably not until sometime after my big exam in mid December!
