Flirting with Barbera

The first morning in Piedmont started in a tourist-mode, with a short visit to Monforte d’Alba, where together with Danish journalist and editor Jørgen Aldrich, we were enjoying a late spring morning waiting for the other wine-writers to arrive. After several months of isolation and limited travelling opportunities being able to enjoy this coffee at leisure al fresco in a small Italian town felt like a return to the old reality.

Gra winiarska - degustacja wina
Date of the event: 
Friday 3 July 2020

Zapraszamy na kolejną Grę Winiarską! To świetne połączenie degustacji z pewną dawką adrenaliny; można wiele się nauczyć, sprawdzić już posiadane wiadomości i co najważniejsze - jest wiele zabawy. Każdy z nas w końcu ma małą potrzebę rywalizacji. Trochę skupienia, potem ewentaulnie wymiana opinii z innymi osobami, degustacja - i zaczynami grę. Każdy ma możliwość zdobycia nagrody.

Babylonstoren - beauty and complexity of a wine farm

First impression when you reach Babylonstoren – is this a paradise on earth? Babylonstoren is one of the oldest Dutch Farms located between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands, South Africa. This place is so much more than a wine estate or a farm. It's a concept, a philosophy of healthy life style, a place to spend few hours or even days, depend if you just come there for a lunch, shopping, wine tasting or to stay at their luxury hotel.

Wine bar to visit - Mielżyński Wine Spirits Specialties

One of the best wine bars in Warsaw, the place we all like to go back for an evening-out with friends or when looking for a professional wine store . They have two locations in Warsaw, each different in style, both based on the same concept: combination of a huge wine store with a bar/restaurant and a tasting room. My favourite location is undoubtedly the one on Burakowska street, occupying the left wing of the refurbished Old Lace Factory.
