    The winery in Barbaresco was Marchesi Di Gresy and the Michelin rated restaurant was La Ciau del Tornavento in Treiso

    Wooowww... I remember... I visited the Castello di Guarene four times a few years ago; the previous owner (the Countess Provana di Collegno invited me for an expertise of some rare books in the Library room) and I had a great time during these days.
    Hope that the new property granted you a superb accomodation as the wines you tasted...
    Have a nice stay in Norhtwest Italy!!!
    my best

    Italy, yes! My sister was there last winter. My friends were there couple years ago. Beautiful country indeed, some gorgeous vistas, and Rome. ...The food, vino, people. ...

    I have close to 1000 photos of our week in St Petersburg and our week in Italy. I will bog the entire trip after we get home on Monday and I am over jet lag. Stay tuned. Final day today in Soriso. Marty and I are meeting Gian60 who is taking us to his home to hear his system
