Terroir in Monte Bernardi

On Saturday excursions we are so lucky to go and see enologist (wine maker) Michael at Monte Bernardi who is a biodynamic fundamentalist (positive annotation of the word) and a very attentive-to-detail wine maker in his own estate near to Panzano in Chianti, where it is possible o try some of the best wines that the region has to offer.

The Tuscan Wine Society

Harvest is happening in these days and the grapes are looking beautiful this year. Here's a photo from the harvest last week at San Polino in Montalcino.

And now for some big news that I would like to share with you all. I have decided to transform the company into a cultural association with the new name of Tuscan Wine Society (translated from its Italian name "Associazione del vino toscano"). This means that whoever wants to join an excursion to the Tuscan wine regions now will become a member of the association and also the farms visited during the trips will be associated to the Society. This opens doors for more cultural and in-depth exchanges of agricultural practices and a deeper understanding of the Tuscan viticulture and eno-gastronomic traditions. So I am very happy to announce this transformation and with it believe that the true nature of my educational activities have been defined in a more appropriate manner.

Here's the new logo of the association, hope you like it!
