Congratulations to our friends at Villa Sparina! Their Gavi wine has received the prestigious TRE BICCHIERI (three-glass) award from Italian Wines 2013. This is our wine "bible" when it comes time to select wines when no live, expert help is available. That is NOT needed when we visit Villa Sparina and dine in their La Gallina ristorante, we simply let them choose their best bottles to complement the excellent food. In 2013 you'll have two chances to enjoy a stay here, on Best of Piedmont June 10-18 but also on La Primavera May 14-21 which will also include visits to the Museum of Champions in Novi Ligure as well as Castellania, birthplace of Fausto Coppi. Join us!
