dreaming of piemonte...

moon nebbia dawn on bricco delle viole

Throwing this photo in the mix today, in honor of two blogs I read the most often Do Bianchi , and Mc Duff's food and wine trail.  Both who have posted this photo earlier courtesy of Giuseppe of G.D. Vajra.. Who's wines I respect and enjoy.
Just glance at this view, and it fills your heart with nostalgia... why wouldn't you want to pass on this beautiful alba to everyone....

On the subject of piemonte, this brought to my attention again the 80th anniversary of the Fiera Internazionale del Tartufo Bianco d'Alba .  The annual festival celebrating the all mighty white truffle of alba (being sold somewhere over $3,000 per pound).  It is taking place right now through the 14 of november.  A good Friend of mine will be present, and hopefully I can get some pictures from him I can post over here...

  1. dude, thanks for shout out and the mucho blog love. please shoot me an email (I can't find yours). I have something to share with you offline... :-)

  2. Ditto what DoBi said. It's great to see Giuseppe's photo generating so much emotion and natural response.

    As a dog lover, I can't help but smile at the tartufo e cane pic you've used, too. I'd hoped to be there for the Fiera this year. Next year, perhaps.
