Start of the Not VinItaly Tour

It's the morning of day 2 of the Not VinItaly Tour with Matt Mollo.  Basically, Matt Mollo and a bunch of wine people from the North East are touring around north and central Italy visiting small family wine farms as a counter point to VinItaly.  We made it to Venice on the morning of April 23rd and immediately jumped in a van and hit the road for Friuli and Marco Sara's place.

We met up with Marco and then headed around Povolento and Collio Orientali Friuli to check out a bunch of his vineyards.

Tasting in Marco's winery

I got in 3.5 miles of hill repeats before dinner but then I got up at 5:45 on Thursday the 24th and got in a hour and a half run through the hills.  The hills in Collio are steep!  It was maybe the slowest 8.5 miles over ever run!
