Wine Harlots love Collio! We spent a few enchanting days in the Collio in Italy, and we are forever changed. The people were lovely, the places and sights were extraordinary, the wine was amazing, and the food was indescribably wonderful. The first meal was the best of my life, and every meal thereafter was better than the next. We’ve been struggling with how to express the experiences we had, and how to do justice to the kindness and hospitality that was extended during our stay. Over the next few weeks we will be attempting to put into words the sights, sounds and emotions of the trip.
Collio is in the northeast corner of Italy in the region of Friuli Venezia Giula, 60 miles north of Venice, between the Giulian Alps and the Adriatic Sea is the crescent shaped area known as Collio. On a map, it looks like a smile, and Wine Harlots spent a lot of time smiling. Our hosts’ tagline is: “Fall in Love with Collio.” Wine Harlots did, and we will endevor for you to fall in love too.
