Product Description

Review

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

I bought this book as a Christmas present for a very special English friend of mine.
I live in the Collio area and I wanted to send to my friend something that could be able to describe this area which is famous for its wines and foods.
This book is simply perfect and it describes the area and wine and food producers very well.
It's a pity this book is not very well known in Italy...
Great work!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By E. M. Haines Wood on 17 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
Well, I haven't yet been to the Collio, the region of Italy described here, but it sounds both magical and hidden, tucked away between the Alps and the Slovenian border. Carla Capalbo describes a tiny hilly region of northern Italy where the wine is carefully and lovingly made, where cheese and salami is made in traditional ways, where trattoria provide great platefuls of hunters' food: grilled meats, polenta, game, cured sausage, casseroles, a curious blend of Italian and Slovenian. Her photographs show a sumptuous autumn countryside of tiny villages, sloping vineyards and winding empty roads. Generations of Collio families are interviewed passionately describing their wines, their cheeses, their traditions, smiling out from the page, inviting you to come and sample. Oh my goodness, I have to go and see for myself...
