A great way to finish Radici del Sud 2012…

Can you think of any better way to finish than a glass if Taurasi Riserva and a fresh wood fired pizza, made by a southern Italian trained in Napoli? Pretty hard to beat I reckon…

Today I head off to Roma before catching a late flight back home tomorrow night. It has been a fantastic experience in Puglia for Radici del Sud 2012.

A southern Italian welcome…

The town of Ostuni

After spending a relaxing morning in Ostuni, it was good to met my fellow judges at Radici del Sud last night and meet two of the strongest supporters of the wines of the South, Nicola Campanile and Franco ZilianiNicola together with the help of Franco have been responsible for putting together such an amazing event. The south and it’s future are in good hands with these two men.

Menu from last nights’ dinner.

During last nights’ dinner at Borgo Egnazia Resort we drank wines selected by Radici matched with some pretty amazing food. The highlight for me was just how well the Roses matched with the first couple of dishes. Rose from Puglia has to be some of the best Rose from Italy.

Today we have a very busy schedule, meeting with lots of different producers during the morning and afternoon. For dinner we are heading to the town of Locorotondo which I am really looking forward to.
