You won’t believe what the Italians have come up with now. Actually, I don’t know if it is just the Italians but I have never seen anything like this outside of Italy.
Walk into a winery here, and you will find what looks like a gas station. With pumps. But with wine. And it is not shitty wine. It is the best wine you have probably ever tasted. And it costs just a few bucks because the best wine you have ever tasted is the average wine here.
All of the wine is made here, with grapes sourced from a few different farms in the area. The farm we stayed at last fall sends their grapes to a winery such as this one, where they are turned into a yummy wine by highly skilled craftsman. We enjoyed sampling some before deciding on a few bottles (not casks) to bring home with us and try in the coming weeks. We have fallen in love with a new type, Spergola, an aperitif (you drink it before the meal). Next, we might start to try more noble wines, meaning the grapes are hand picked. These can be found a lot in the Cinque Terre area.
If you are traveling through Italy, stop at one of these wineries for a taste!
