[March, 2012] The first winery I visited in Langhe in Piedmont in Italy was called Salvano.
I just rang the door bell and popped in and found it was not open on Saturday.
But the receptionist said 'Our owner is here at the moment, so I will go and ask him' and came back with him.
This sort of flexible reaction is really Italian.
The owner said ” I have to fetch my children, but I can spear 10 minutes” and showed me around.
This company export a lot and it seems that the main customers are Chinese.
He said that he went to China 8 times last year.
I remember one French person was saying that in the UK, French wines are too expensive there.
The UK is not really a wine producer, so people can enjoy wines from all over the world, but the problem is that they are all rip-off…
