Altho we do help with the raccolta (olive harvest), we don't know anyone with a vineyard, so we just wait, then enjoy!

Ciao Barbara (and Art!)
thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely comment!

In case you're looking for a vineyard for this fall's upcoming vendemmia, contact Francesca Pique' at Villa Rucellai in Tuscany. It's a glorious b&b working farm. In October, the wine picking season begins. Last year's vintage was a disaster, but who knows, this year maybe... Also at the end of November they make their own cold-pressed olive oil. I love that place!

Thanks Lola, but I'll just wait for the finished product! Everyone around here is saying this will be a great year!
