Pippo, We Hardly Knew Ye: In Memory of Philip di Belardino

The world is a little less safe for Italian wine today. Dear friend Philip di Belardino has left us.

A tireless ambassador for all things Italian, always with a smile, a joke and a way to reach even the most morose of us, Philip, “Pippo” to his friends, will be missed. I have a hole in my heart.

There will be more stories coming out in the days to come. But for now I just have the warmth of memories of a son of Italy; a man who lived for others, always the giver, always the one with an overflowing cup of love and friendship.

Happy trails, amico.
