Back to Milan

Alex and Tammy went to Florence today while the rest of us went to Castelli di Monsanto in the Barbarino area. Our hostess was welcoming and informative and we enjoyed tasting wine with her in the sun front of the castle. Monsanto has long underground caves that were fun to walk through. They have set aside bottles of wine for the birth year of family members to be used for celebrations such as weddings. After this we all went in different directions. Dinner was at the wonderful Osteria di Passignano (the people who catered Kate's dinner) and we both delicious and fun.
