  • It sounded like a very loud frog. Poking around in my host’s barn I came across this barrel of fermenting Sangiovese. The noise was the sound of escaping gasses going through a water regulator as the wine made its journey towards becoming a delicious liqueur.  I’ll definitely be returning to taste it! .

  • I awoke at 3:45am to get to Orly Airport in Paris to catch a plane to Italy. At noon I am in the hills of Chianti, ensconced in a tiny winery where the owners are plying me with the contents of their cellar. The sun is shining. Buon weekend! #chianti #raddainchianti #italianwine #italianwines #italianlife #Italian lifestyle
