We have been out of email access for a while, but your note reminded me that I thank you for the wonderful gastronomy tour of the Langhe. It was truly an amazing day, from meeting the winemaker at the Enoteca in Barolo, to visiting the market with Fernanda and her extraordinary lunch for us all, to the tour of Anna Maria’s cantina. Through it all, you were gracious and informative.
