Daydreams. Getting back to Nature. Living the good life. Fleeing from empty ambition. Avoiding ephemeral fads. Seducing and being seduced by the fruits of the earth. Being consistent even when it’s not worth it. Recovering the ancient rural culture of Abruzzo, seeking out the ancient native vines. Making a good wine and selling it at a reasonable price. Giving wine a personality, without making it too complicated for the consumer. This is the handbook for my winery, Chiusa Grande. This is my life.
