Parma Biking Friday June 17, 2004
Reggio Loop Ride via Quattro Castella 41.9 km
John & Carol And we were off to the foothills to see wine making, four castles, and the making of balsamico tradicionale. A warm day with more hills!


(below) After the tour of the winery, we set off on foot to climb the hill to see the making of balsamico tradicionale.

What you don't see in this picture are the bats that lived in the attic where these barrels of balsamico are stored!
lunch
Lunch ended with molto vechio (very old) balsamico on ice cream.
