Winery Visit 1

Fattoria La Vialla Winery near Cappannelle _ Castiglion Fibocchi

TheoryBroma

Our next vinification destination was Fattoria La Vialla. Much of what we encountered was similar to Pomaio, but it was still interesting and educational, and we tried many wines, including one from earlier in the process (before it was ready) which showed how important the first portion of the aging process is. They offered an impressive array of food, even without serving pasta as a main dish, and I did enjoy trying the different foods (cheeses especially) with the different wines. One of the wines, to me, tasted very noticeably of salmon/fish. Some people agreed with this, but I wonder if it was so strong for me because I had the first pour from the bottle. Some compound(s) could have risen to the top, giving it a different flavor profile. Unfortunately, I did not try any other samples of this wine so I can’t tell if it was just me…

FROSÉ-The Coolest Summer Drink

Nube Rosa is cool. Fattoria la Vialla near Castiglion Fibocchi

la vida bonita

Today was the first warm day and it was time for this year`s hottest summer drink. FROSÉ has been celebrated by trendy bars in Los Angles and New York. The slushy drink made of frozen rosé, strawberries and crushed ice is the best way to cool down. I used a rosé from my favorite organic Italian winery “Fattoria La Vialla”, which produce their wine on a beautiful family estate. The fruity aroma of the refreshing drink made me dream of warm beach days in Bella Italia.

Ingredients

  • Rosé wine
  • 500 g (2 cups) Strawberries
  • Crushed ice
  • 3-4 tbsp. sugar
  • Fresh Mint
  • Optional: Grenadine or Aperitivo Rosato

Instructions

  1. Pour a bottle of rosé wine into a baking tin or any other wide container and leave it in the freezer for about some hours. In the meantime, cut the strawberries in small pieces, mix them with 3-4 tbsp. of sugar and let…

Arezzo- Rondine

Wonderful decision to vist Rondine

Sam in Italy 2k16

First off, if you want to know more about Rondine, I suggest you check out their website at rondine.org. I will attempt to tell you about their mission, and how it challenged my world view.

Rondine is an activist organization that seeks to inspire change through peace. They take students from conflict zones (Israel/Palestine, Armenia/Azerbaijan, etc.) and bring them together to study and learn about the other side. Through personal interaction and debate, they seek to humanize the conflict, instead of demonizing the other side as propaganda tends to do.

Conflict resolution is embedded within the curriculum at Rondine, but conflict between the sides is inevitable. One of the students there told us, “we cannot avoid what happens.” Tempers inevitably flare, but they seek to meditate the peace process and bring about change. Rondine staff seek to change the perspective of conflicting sides, one voice of reason at a time.
