Our summer, waiting for you…
They say that it ends on the 21st of September, but here in Romagna it works like this, that summer ends more or less around the 16th of August, the day when Christmas, autumn and the whole year ahead is already starting to be planned. But for us winemakers, this moment starts with the beginning of the grape harvest. Dado begins his work in the vineyard and Macio disappears until spring, to travel around the world.
This summer was really busy and the autumn that awaits us will be very different from the previous ones because we have finally completed our dream of a lifetime: our showroom. But let’s go over the most beautiful moments of this summer: at the end of July we fetched our team of collaborators and agents and brought them to the vineyard to let them experience the land where our wines were born. How can you understand the sea if you live in Milan?
To understand the sea you have to experience it!
After a stroll in the vineyard we took them to the only restaurant which is always open and ready to make you feel at home: Loredana (our mother) who opened the doors of her kitchen to us, because you have to understand how it is possible for a Caciara to go so well with fresh fish from the Adriatic… from freshly fished mussels, rivers of Pagadebit and between one joke and another from our friend Bicio, we saw another sunset, and on-board the Amerigo, from the port of Cattolica, we went to have a swim in the open sea, where the blue of the sea blended with the pinky orange of the sky, holding our glasses in our hands in the cool of the sea. “Massimo now we can understand why you feel the ssssssalt in your wines!” was the perfect line for the ending of a perfect day together, which will surely remain long in our memories, at least surely in ours.
We’ve always said, we are seafarers with one foot in the vineyard and one in the Adriatic: our wines were the protagonists of all the picnics of the Locanda I Girasoli in Misano, an enchanted inn where sea breezes meet those of the hills. The scent of grilled meat on an open fire, sausages accompanied by piada and a glass of red wine drunk fresh was one of the happy moments of the summer.
Last but not least, like every year we are happy to have been the sponsor of one of the last truly authentic Romagna events, as we like it: the Palio del Daino.
Every year the Palio del Daino in Mondaino welcomes thousands of visitors among its narrow streets..
It represents one of the most fascinating national events of its kind, to be precise one which we faithfully reproduce the life of the past, studied down to the smallest details. Magic that can carry you back in time to the centuries of the Signoria lordships.
And now you just have to remember, if you have come this far, here is the most important news of all: last week the work on the construction site ended, and this week we open, quietly, but we open ... are you ready to visit us?
