Should I Stay Or Should I Go…?

Should I Stay Or Should I Go…?

Well, here we are again, 11 months later... At the end of June last year, I posted a blog about restrictions on travel easing and places opening up again. With summer 2021 just around the corner, it's that time of year once more when we are allowed to think about...

…My Arse

Now, does anyone remember the European Super League?  Come on, you must remember!  Those were heady days, weren’t they?  Both of them. Pub Trivia Night question coming up: does anyone know who scored the first goal in the European Super League? ...

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

Well, Easter has come and gone and we’re in mid-April.  Spring, damaging frosts at the start of the month notwithstanding, is here. And that means growth in the vineyards – but not only for the vines.  Around the time of budding, we also get the arrival of...

East-er West?

East-er West?

Right, I haven’t done a blog post at all this year – what is there to say…?  January and February, I was at home looking after Noah every other week, looking for importers for my wine and someone to give me some guidance with my writing.  Other than that,...

Yule Blog…

...and so will I... I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.  I need help.  Professional help. In the meantime, I thought I would do a final little blog post for the first year of PiemonteMio and Byrne Vini.  And what a year it's been: what a time to be launching new...

The harvest may have finished this year, but I hope this post is a little more relevant than the Anglo Saxon Chronicles…As ever here, if it's in yellow, click on it - you might like it. 2020 has been a good year for the vineyards here in Piemonte – without doubt there...

Well, here we are again. I have recently had another article published in The Local Italy – this time about what assistance there has been for wine producers here in Italy due to the Corona virus pandemic and what the situation is for producers in Piemonte.  I...

Spot the difference…

Spot the difference…

Since my last blog post – improbably over a month ago now - I have finally managed to establish Byrne Vini.  This is my acorn-sized wine-making project.  In fact, we bottled 600 bottles (plus a few extras for tasting samples and possibly one or two to drink)...

Pumices, pumices…

Pumices, pumices…

Count yourselves lucky - I was working on some worse titles than that.  Etna Mountain High Enough, for example. Anyway, now that we are again allowed to foregather, I started to think about when the last time was that there was a group of us here at home. ...

Bridges in the Sky

Well, that's just great, isn't it?  I got all ready, and did a blog post about the introduction of 'air bridges' between the UK and other countries - I've been hearing about them, seeing them in the media: set to be confirmed on Wednesday 1st July, then Friday...

Trouble In Paradise?

Trouble In Paradise?

Right, here’s another post – this time about biodynamics. On Friday 12th June I took part in (?) two Instagram Chats, hosted by Keith Edwards, who has a great blog, as well as an apparently limitless cellar.  These chats were about biodynamics – the first with a...

The Kraken Awakes

So, from 18th May we have been allowed out again in a form much more redolent of our lives before Corona virus.  In Piemonte, we chose to wait until Saturday 23rd May: here in Alba, the squares were full, people were chatting, getting their coffee or aperitivo...
