That’s Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey on the bus yesterday in Friuli talking to our group about why “Sauvignon Blanc is Friuli’s secret weapon.”
Bobby’s intense wine knowledge and his all-around good vibe have made this trip an extremely interesting and fun experience (however opulent, it’s still a “march,” with EXHAUSTING 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. days visiting wineries and food destinations).
It’s been tough to get online but I’m psyched to get back home next week to Tracie P (I MISS HER SO DAMN MUCH!) and start sharing some more-detailed and in-depth info about the Friulian and Tuscan legs of this amazing trip…
Can’t wait, Jeremy. It has been awesome to follow these posts. I totally miss Friuli and your pictures/notes haven’t helped!
Stuckey is da maaan, especially when it comes to Friuli.
Keep writing, we’ll keep reading!
so many stories even i haven’t heard…we’re all waiting for it, 2B. now git yer skinny butt home!
I agree with that. It’s almost as if any random bottle of Friuli SB is better than any random bottle of NZ SB.
