As most of you know, Italy is in the grips of the Covid-19 virus. It has been two years since we have been able to go to an outdoor tasting such as the annual La Morra tasting the first Sunday in September. Do we know if there will be any of the aforementioned tastings this year? Our crystal ball is fogged up so it is telling it nothing. If I had to guess, I would say it will be another year without seeing our friends in La Morra and Serralunga d'Alba. But, I have been wrong and hope that I am this time again.
Hope to see you somewhere on the trail!!
An update...it seems like Italy is opening up, just a touch. I have communicated with the tourist bureau in La Morra, one of the Barolo towns. They indicate that the Cantina Communale is having tastings. They are unable to say that the first Sunday in September tasting might happen or not but if I had to guess, it will happen if the variant that is starting to be running amok in Italy is stopped.
Stay tuned, we will keep you informed as soon as we know.
