Alagna…. great wine – Feb 19 to 21 2011

February 24, 2011

Last weekend we spent three days in Alagna. Italian it turns out is very easy to learn… Ciao Bella, grazi and prego is all you’ll ever need.

Town…..

I was pretty pumped for this trip and after 40+cms the week before I was expecting blower conditions. Instead a massive warming spell after the snowfall left us with marmalade overlying rocks. Pretty much the entire Monterosa massif is south facing.  On the positives the wine was cheap, food even cheaper and meeting Michele Cuchi (ski guide, polizei, B&B owner, Mountain Rescue Chief and purveyor of all that happens in Alagna) was excellent. Perhaps it’s worth another trip back when snow isn’t at a premium. Oh and that London to Milan flight route… Ciao Bellas
