|Mother of winemaker Pontoni with Christian Patat of Ronco del Gnemiz chatting in Friulan|
Il Roncal agriturismo and winery for a chat with the winemaker, Stefano Salvini and the proprietress Martina Moreale. There is another story there for another time, but the time we live in, 2011, even now, for a woman in a traditional place is challenging.
Lastly, I would have loved to spend an evening cracking walnuts and drinking red wine with I Clivi's Ferdinando Zanusso, who truly is one of the most interesting men in the world. His lives in Africa and traveling the world, working for the UN, to come home and make intense wines from fields of old vine organic grapes. Another story I do want to tell.
