Are you one of those who would to go wine tasting for the weekend, including long lunches and dinners with great wine accompanying the food, but in every free weekend you find in your calendar, there is a game on – so cannot go. Football, the World-kind not the American-kind, is of course the most important thing in the world. To some. Best said by Bill Shankly “”Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.” And way to important to your better half, to leave the terraces, or the couch, one weekend.
So what to do? Well, I have the solution. Go to Piemonte, fake it as a football trip. Check the schedule. Find a home game. And book your flight. It is as simple as that.
This way, your better half gets his or her daily shot of 22 men running around on a grass field kicking a football. And you get to taste, eat and drink in the heart of Piemonte.
Hey, you might even enjoy the football yourself. It’s not always you get to cheer on players with well-known names like Viberti, Conterno, and Manzone. Go Giacosa! Pass the ball, Seghesio, pass! And chant “there is only one Luca Barale, there is only.. well, you know”.
And who said great wine and football did not match?
