It seems like we have been battered by cold and snowy weather since New Year’s. I can’t think of a better way to get us out of our doldrums than to have our good friend Abramo come by for a visit. Tonight he will be highlighting some old favorites from Friuli, along with a pair of new reds from Tuscany.
The staff tried to bring as much luck as we could to the URI basketball team this past Wednesday while supporting a good cause, but unfortunately, the Rams fell just short. Most of the fans in attendance were wearing pink URI shirts to help support the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. It was a great evening until the final seconds of the game!

Tuscany & Friuli with Abramo
The wines of Cormòns, Collio, Italy
Cormòns lies in the heart of Friuli’s wine country.
The surrounding Collio countryside is blanketed with vineyards, reminiscent of Tuscany’s rolling hills or California’s lush Napa Valley. The name Collio is derived from the Italian word colli, meaning “hills,” which epitomizes this landscape where the grapes have more sun exposure than in the low-lying plains. These wines are well-made with great structure and beautiful purity. Regularly priced at $14.99, they are on special for $12.99 for the spring.
