A vineyard in Montefalco just before the harvest

A Good Year” it is the title of a movie filmed by Ridley Scott some time ago. Basically, it is the story of a ruthless British investment broker [Russel Crowe] who inherits his uncle’s chateau and vineyard in Provence, where he spent much of his childhood. Here, as he tries to renovate the estate to be sold, he discovers a new totally different  lifestyle, a new passion [wine making, of course] and a new love, changing totally his priorities and his life.

Some happy moments Season 2014

Although quite commercial and – as some critics said – “a sun-dappled romantic diversion”, it is the kind of movie that simply makes you feel happy for an hour and something, a simple entertainment.

However “A Good Year” has some very nice quotes like the following:

“Once you find something good, you need to take care of it. You need to let it grow”.

Some happy moments Season 2014

This post is just to celebrate this happy moment, the end of our high season and the beginning of a new season, the best moments we are happy to share to thank,  first of all,  the travelers who chose us to discover this beautiful region, our partners at the farms and wineries and all the people who trusted in us.

A very special thank goes to Diana,  so kind to host some posts on wine I had the pleasure and honor to write in her fantastic blog Browsing Italy and Kathy from the great Food Lover’s Odyssey for my interview on the food and wine traditions in my home-town Todi.
