Collio is a garden of earthly delights. What people dream about in Tuscany is reality in Collio. World-class wine pairs with some of Italy's best food, all served with warmth and pride. Magnificent nature and smiling towns complete the picture. Carla Capalbo reveals this little paradise knowledgeably and with love. The smart traveller will be rewarded by this book and by the gem that is Collio. --Fred Plotkin, author of La Terra Fortunata: The Splendid Food and Wine of Friuli-Venezia Giulia
This book should be viewed as a necessary companion for anyone contemplating a visit to Venice and points east, indeed anyone seeking to bring a fresh new gastronomic experience into their lives. --Nicolas Belfrage MW, author of Barolo to Valpolicella: The Wines of Northern Italy
