Bessich Winery Festa

Bessich Wines, one of the local wineries, put on a big wine tasting event.  An event I couldn’t miss on such a beautiful spring day.

They held a little “bread making” class for the kids.

Gotta love a room full of demijohns filled to the brim with vino!

We enjoyed a local lunch of frico (a patty of fried Montasio cheese and potatoes) and polenta.  The kids finally got to do quality control on their baked good.

We sipped some wine while all of the kids went crazy in the bounce house.

They even had a “horsey ride” through the vineyard.

It’s quite a beautiful backdrop for the vineyard.  The mountains here always remind me of home.

This horse got in big trouble for stopping to eat the grape leaves. IMG_5331

Blue skies, a rare appearance from the sun, lots of local wine, and happy kids = a most delightful day!  Arrividerci!

    Looks like a perfect afternoon! The kids are darling and look so proud of their bread. I really need to have that fried cheese thing when we visit!
