Montefioralle on the Slow Day.

A very small group today (just 2!) meant that Laura and Camae -I hope I've spelled it right- got a personal tour of Tuscany's less traveled roads. We could barely find a soul in Montefioralle; well apart from Fernando who let us try his wines and showed the prizes for the painting competition-

• 6 IGT 2007 "Monteficalle" bottles
• 6 Riserva 2007 bottles
• 12 Chianti Classico 2008 bottles

Now thats a competition worth entering.

Cherry picking on the slow day

A great day with Raelene and Ted from Brisbane. It stuck me that some things are easy to take for granted when Raelene was overjoyed to pick cherries from the trees that skirt the grape vines.
So, at least for the next few weeks, or until the birds do their worst, cherry picking will be part of our slow day in Tuscany.
