For Claire,

Slovenian red wines are quite black cherry in color and are luscious wines, however, not on a Summer Day ... Better to go with a chilled Rosé ( not pink wine ! ) ... I had some Slovenian reds at an Embassy event held here in Madrid 3 years ago ... the regional cuisines are quite interesting too ... especially in the frontier with Italia ... as you know, as you mentioned their Pizzas.

I have not been to Slovenia yet, however, we had discussed it with my younger daughter, for late August - September, to drive over the frontier and explore ... I had met several winery owners at this journalism event I attended and thus, it would be wonderful to do an article on the trip as well ...

How is the weather there now ? It is gorgeous here --- however, it is still March and thus, skeptical.

Signing off for tonight Claire,
Kind regards.
Margi.

I've been warned away from Alioto's by the locals. They say the food has really gone down hill.
