Hope you like the new theme and new image! This is sort of a welcome to my new readers. Thank you all for checking out the site. We even had hits from Italy and India! And Great Britain’s going crazy for me this week. 🙂
The wine bottles featured here are from Enoteca Boldrin, near SS Apostoli. (I used to find my way there because it was near the toy store that had in the window the huge Donald Duck made of Legos. Sadly, it’s now yet another shoe store.) This Enoteca is the best place in Venice to get real fragolino (see my previous post that was an homage this this wine). The owner, Loredan or Lori, said he remembered selling me fragolino in previous summers. Lori sails, too, big sailboats like in the America’s Cup. On his shelves, he has photos of himself on various sailboats (and in this photo you can also see part of one of his trophies). Obviously, on his shelves, he also has a lot of wine. And it needs to be dusted. But this place it old-skool Venice, Venetian owned. Drop in for cicchetti and see if you can locate these bottles on the shelves.
