As Lidia Bastianich said, “There is a lot to experience and enjoy in this part of Italy. It is an undiscovered treasure.” (Fodor’s - 2007)

I came across this wonderful article by Gwen and Roger Pratesi, bloggers at Bunkycooks, that describe the beautiful area in North East Italy - Friuli Venezia Giulia - where my English rose and I live with our young crew.

Situated on the border of Austria to the north and Slovenia to the east, this part of Italy has been called “the land of contrasts” due to the diversity in the landscapes, its complicated history and influence of different civilizations on the region.  Surrounded by the Alps to the west and north and the Adriatic Sea to the south, there are indeed many contrasts in topography, language, culture and food in this region. For our visit, we traveled approximately one and a half hours north of Venice to the historic town of Cividale del Friuli.  We stayed on the outskirts of the city in a beautiful agriturismoIl Roncal.  This property is surrounded by its own vineyard which rises up the slope of Montebello.  From this base, we set out on a whirlwind tour of Friuli with our guide, Wayne Young.
