Once again, snow thwarted my travel plans yesterday to attend an event in the city. This is what I missed: A press conference with Daniele Cernilli, Italian Wine Critic & Publisher, a.k.a. Doctor Wine with his newest edition of “The Ultimate Guide to Italian Wine 2016” and Marco Oreggia, journalist, wine & olive oil critic with his 2016 version of “Flos Olei”. Ninety of Europe’s highest quality extra virgin olive oils, along with 130 of Italy’s finest wines were served. Hopefully, I’ll catch them on their 2017 tour!
After reassembling my day and tending to “indoor” projects, I spent a relaxing evening with a friend sipping on cognac and watching a little television. My disappointment in missing yesterday’s event was short lived and replaced with good humor & thoughtfulness thanks to my friend!
More snow tomorrow!
