Kirby's post this morning got me thinking about the time Matt and I trekked around Italy. One of our very favorite places was Piedmonte. It's a grape-growing region in the north, that (in my opinion) rivals Tuscany in terms of stark contrasts and breath-taking vistas. We visited one (very small) family-owned winery. The owner didn't speak English and neither did his mother, who very kindly brought out complimentary salami, olives and cheese while we sampled Moscato d'Asti. We walked away with six bottles at one euro a piece!
Have you ever been to Italy? What was your favorite town?
