I know some of you know that we have a vineyard here in the Lunigiana. It came with the house. The funny story is that when we bought the house, the vineyard was never mentioned. It was only mentioned when the sellers accepted our offer, and we were toasting with their (now our) wine. Imagine how happy and surprised we were. As we always say, “only in Italy!” It’s actually a longer story, one that I am including in my next book Italy is my Boyfriend, which I am in the middle of writing right now.
Every year (it’s been 3), I look forward to the harvest. I excitedly wait for our vintner’s entire family to arrive. Even the dog joins in.
For me, fall is thee best time of year in Italy! It’s the harvest, and it’s just so amazing to watch everything ripen. You literally see the seasons change here in farm country.
Fingers crossed this year’s harvest will make for a delicious vintage. Cin Cin from the vineyard…
