There is an amazing New Zealander called Jeffrey Chilcott who has lived and worked in Barbaresco – in the heart of the wine growing area of Piedmonte for over 25 years .
This visit once again was a Highlight – 5 hours of sheer enjoyment, starting with a tour of the Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi de Cresy winery followed by a wine tasting . We then sat down to the most extraudinary long lunch in the heart of the Barbaresco village. I think it was 8 courses from a sublime veal tartare,plates of stuffed vegetables, the famous veal with tonnato sauce, the thinnest fine pasta ever, pheasant, followed by 3 desserts . But hey whose counting !!
