This past Thursday Mark Gasbarro hosted his Taste for a Cause wine tasting, once again raising money for the Program in Women’s Oncology at Women & Infants Hospital. It was a beautiful early Fall evening at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, R.I. There was food, there was wine and it was once again a grand

Dining Review of Rosalina in Providence, RI

Rosalina 4

We’re in Providence semi-regularly, and find our way to Trinity Rep for a play six times a year. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from in the city, and that’s a good thing. There’s actually quite a few a stone’s throw from the Trinity Repertory Theater as well, so choices do abound. One

Dinner at Kotlar

Here we continue with our report on the recent trip to Slovenia and the Vinska Klet Goriška Brda Winery. Good things just kept happening.

Sunday, or day three, was all about history, and this region has plenty of it. WWI brought long, bitter and fierce fighting to this region, as the mountains were won and

Part of the harvest

This is a review of a recent trip to the Goriška Brda area of Slovenia, and in particular the Vinska Klet Goriška Brda Winery, who hosted eight representatives from their U.S. distributors as well as myself. Slovenia was an unknown to me and almost everyone I talked to beforehand. Most

A Bottle to Remember . . . Forever!

The Archive Vault

I recently had the good fortune to tag along on a distributor trip to the Vinska Klet Goriska Brda winery in the Brda region of Slovenia, just over the eastern Italian border. This is a beautiful wine country of hills, valleys and terraced vineyards, reminding me in some spots of the hills of Barolo and

brda vineyard 3

I’ll be off to the Brda region of Slovenia soon to tour the vineyards and the local wine cooperative, as well as sample lots of their wines. Who knows, might even get a bit of sight seeing in as well. Just over the northeastern Italian border, the Brda region is comprised of rolling hills with

We keep trying more of our stash of 2005 Bordeaux, and across the board these wines are showing extremely well right now. Here’s another one to look for, and it is still affordable. This really was a great vintage.
