Friends and feasts in Foligno -- oh my!

Lucky me! On Saturday, I took the train from Rome out to Foligno for the day. For lunch, I met my friends Mary, Letizia, Ruurd and Tea for an absolute feast at the Osteria del Teatro. As if spending time with my friends wasn't delicious enough, Mary then gave me a bottle of the Sagrantino which she and her husband Maurizio produce; then, Letizia gave me a bottle of her very own olive oil -- produced from her own olive trees growing in the hills above Assisi. It tastes incredibly young and vibrant. 
Lucky me!!!

Hi Sandra, sounds like you had a wonderful time with your friends. Home grown olive oil and wine ... yum.

Have a wonderful week.

Sounds like so much fun. I love the labels on both of those bottles.

Happy holidays to you!

Hi Kathy, it really was a lovely day with fantastic food and friends. And I narrowly missed the snowfall, which landed the next day!

Annie, aren't they lovely? I'm keeping the bottles after they're emptied, just for that.

Kathy and Annie I hope that you both have a wonderful holiday season!
