A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to take my bride, Leenie, on a business trip to Italy for the launch of Mosaic® universal composite, a product we’ve been testing and working on for years—making the trip to one of the most beautiful places in the world that much more exciting. However, we made sure that a trip to Italy wasn’t strictly business. This trip was one of the few that Leenie went on with me. We set it up so we would arrive on Saturday and be able to take a couple days to relax and decompress. On Sunday, Aurelio Gisco, the director of Ultradent’s Italy office, and the fabulous Barbara Madalena took us to the Piedmont area vineyards, just north of Milan, where they grow and make the world-famous Barolo wines. What a stunningly beautiful part of the world. That night, we ate in one of the farm restaurants of the vineyard owner himself, where we were served wonderful, high-quality, down-to-earth, delicious Italian cooking.
