How to Cope with Hot Weather: Dream of Piemonte in Fall

It really does work!  There was a storm coming in as the sun set and a cool rain starting to fall; I was alone in a Langhe vineyard listening to distant tractors wrapping up harvest work and the wind gently rustling the leaves.  The fading sunlight cast an unearthly red, yellow, and violet hue on the roiling clouds.

An amazing moment I revisit all the time, and look forward to search for again and again.

Help Grow A Family Owned Piemonte Winemaker

No secret that we’re big fans of both Azienda Giribaldi in the Langhe, and The Winefathers‘ efforts to help artisanal winemakers throughout Italy as they plant new vineyards and restore old ones.

Here’s a chance to help a small, family owned and run winemaker continue their wonderful mission.  Your donation will go a long way to keeping winemaking and viticulture in Piemonte a family affair, true to its roots.

Pretty hard to beat.  What a place!  Take the time to get off the beaten path in Italy and you are *rewarded*.  It’s not necessarily easy to get here, but we can certainly get you there, and you’ll be greeted with some pretty amazing hospitality.

Thanks go to our friends at Giribaldi.
