Food and wine - Still a good match

I am always amazed how a sunny warm day and impeccable arranged stands can make your day even before wine tastings begin. This year Vinitaly was all that. Plus excellent wines. Plus a new ideas like fusion of wine and music or Sparkling Italy; wine tasting for visitors with a modern approach. All you need is to seat down, type in a wine of your choosing, taste it and at the end evaluate the wine. With 4.000 exhibitors and almost countless number of wines to taste it was very difficult to stay focused. Luckily our complete team was there having a great time. Italy is all food and wines reflect that. While Staša had her fun with wines from northern Italy, I explored a Tuscany and some Slovenian wines new to me.
