I Like Big Grapes And I Cannot Lie. Blog # 2
The other day, we had the chance to go visit an Agriturismo which was run by an old classmate of our professors! For starters, an agriturismo is a property of land that has been helped by the government to turn people's farmland into a bed and breakfast in which all of their foods are grown their on their farm. Not only do they produce all their own organic foods and olive trees which they get their olive oil from, they also have their own grape vines and winery. Unlike the wine that is produced there from their grapes, their olives are sent off somewhere to have the actual oils made and returned to them.
After we were done visiting the gardens and learning about their grape vines, we of course had to go see where the wines were fermented and finished the day off with tasting their wonderful products! This was probably the best part of the day for sure.
