Wine Tasting Trip at Roberto Manara Winery (Ziano Piacentino, Italy)

Vino (VEE-no) in Italian means “wine”.

We had a great opportunity to participate in a wine tasting trip… at “Roberto Manara” winery. It is in a little town called “Ziano Piacentino”… about 1 hour from Milan, Italy.

When we arrived it was raining a lot. Staff took us to see equipments for the processes of producing wines. There were machines to filter and separate grapes. Inside the winery, there were several containers to store grapes…that was fermentation process… little by little, they will turn into wine.

After a wine tasting we went to a little restaurant in Vicobarone…a town near by… the place is call “Antica Trattoria del Tempio”. First Course was “gnocchetti” with peanut cream sauce. It was really good… fresh pasta with yummy sauce! I really like it.
