When I was small, during the summer holidays I used to spend most of my time at my granny's country house. I remember a cozy stone house, a deep well, huge vegetable gardens, fruit trees and the smell of a wood fire. At summer’s end, I would return to the city, where our pantry would be stocked with jars, all filled with tasty jams, grilled vegetables and fruit. Whenever I came across a grocery store in town, I always wondered why the contents of their jars always seemed so pale and in color: now I know.
I'm grown up now, and have been working in the Tuscan wine industry for a decade. Along the way, I've gotten to know the small artisan producers here in my special town, Montepulciano. I love spending time with them, because they have so much in common with that my granny used to do.
I think you’ll enjoy getting to know then and their work too. Their gift is to give us pleasure and good health!
