A visit with Marenco

Here's a photo of our little group at the Marenco wine-making operation. We used to come by quite often back when our Paradise in Piedmont itinerary included Asti but now we've added this route to Vineyards to the Sea. These folks make one of our favorite wines, Brachetto. They kindly offered us some tastes and snacks before we continued on to Liguria where, after some serious climbing, we arrived to enjoy some of the best pesto anywhere! The skies have also stopped dropping moisture on us to the relief of most everyone we spoke with along our routes. Too soon it seems we'll be on the coast and near the end of this tour!

  1. You're killing me here! Wine, pesto - don't make me come over there. Maybe next year.
