Snowy Day in Friuli

We had our first significant snowfall last night here in Friuli. Lovely to look at, but tough for driving…

Some chunks of ponca under snow…

The terraces behind the winery…

We got about 5 or 6 cm (3 inches) but its slushy and slippery now… Windy too… Best to stay inside and warm up with a glass of Calabrone!


MORE MasterChef ITALIA @ Bastianich Winery

I wanted to post a couple more pictures from yesterday’s shoot at the Bastianich winery…

Just to give a little background, MasterChef USA with Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliott is going into it’s second season on FOX. The ITALIAN version including Joe and two famous Italian chefs (can’t tell you who right now!) is filming in Milano. For Joe’s biography segment, they decided to shoot some scenes of Joe in the cellar and in the vineyard. Here are some more pics I took during the filming… MasterChef Italia airs in September CIELO television in Italia!

Lovely Day in the PLUS Vineyard

I just wanted to share a couple shots I took recently in the Plus vineyard just at budbreak, a day or 2 before VinItaly. I was a wonderful day and these photos came out so well… CIMG1426

In these you really get an idea of the altitiude and position of these vines and how they get sun and air all day for perfect ripening and clean fruit… CIMG1428
