Thank you to the 17 very wise German men

22 Nov

Twas my final night in Alba before departing for the Veneto and I was hanging with my mamma Italiana, Ornella. As her and I were wandering the antiquated streets arm in arm we ran into the 17 German men she had done a wine tasting for the night before!

They asked us if we would like to drink some Gaja with them…

So we said, ‘Why not?!’

We drank the 2004 Sperss Langhe red retailing at some significant amount but it was 17 wealthy German men in a fabulous mood who didn’t care for money. We chatted with them for a bit then thanked them quickly before going to another bar to see another friend. Thank you lads for the drink!
