In celebration of peasant culture, and its wines
“Discover the beauty in things that are not beautiful”
Piet Oudolf ““ celebrated garden designer
IF I WAS SITTING IN A VILLAGE CAFÃ‰ IN THE SOUTH OF ITALY
And the server brought me a glass of this white, I’d think “˜not good, but honest and therefore perfect’. Just like the furnishings in the café and most things in the village. That’s its appeal and the reason I came. Some of our days and moods are comforted by something more simple, soulful or earthy. I ask the server to translate the name on the bottle “It says “˜peasant nose’ (Naso Contadio)”. I look at the back label and instead of the usual marketing hype I read “˜as the wine hits your palate every sip bridges the gap between the sweet aromas your senses taste and the palette your mind paints’. I’m in heaven.
